Here, you’ll find ONLY the items I have purchased and used in my kitchen. Each item includes a custom description as to why I’m in love. As I continue to purchase and use items that I feel comfortable recommending to my fellow creators I’ll be sure to update. The fact that you’re taking the time to check out my recs means the world!
I'm a sucker for cute jars. I mean, I have just the regular kinda jars too... but these always come in handy for gifting! A quick salad dressing with a ribbon and BOOM. Cure little welcome to the neighborhood gift. Some homemade preserves and BOOM. A one of a kind hostess gift for that dinner party you're headed to.
There's also fab to store snacks like trail mix, house nuts, and seeds.
Even homemade candles..... whaaaaa? That's right! So. Multipurpose. Which is how I LOVE to roll.
I've use these to make homemade crème fraîche, store pestos, house garlic confit, and so much more. Primarily these are being used in my kitchen for sauces, dips, and quick pickles. Perfect to take to a summer BBQ or to nestle into a bowl of tortilla chips. Think next level guac baby.
Homemade pancake mix? CHECK. Cornmeal? CHECK. Homemade crackers? CHECK. These larger air tight containers keep alllllll the things safe, crisp, and as delicious as when they went in. I took a whack and left a batch of homemade crackers in one of these for 3 weeks... and whatdaya know... they were still crisp.
I use these ALL the time. There where my homemade coquito goes during the holidays. It's how I serve water at the table when I want to look class but casual. My homemade margarita mix lives in one of these. I also use to store my home-brewed chai so that I can whip up iced chai lattes when I feel like it. Oh. And fermented hot sauce happened in 2 of these bad boys. Lasted us 9 months with no issues in the fridge!!
FYI: The link will take you to a bunch of different sizes!
I blame the Rona for this one. But ended up being over the moon with some unexpected results!! Back when we weren't sure what was what, I decided to go in the direction of as many non perishables as possible. Went to a local bulk store and grabbed a 40 pound bag of basmati rice, 40 pound bag of pintos, and 40 pound bag of black beans. Easily a 1/3 of the cost I was paying for smaller bags... WIN. But then I needed a way to keep these goodies same long term.
How is Pet Storage half the price of People Storage?! And still BPA free and food grade safe?! You won't get me. I went the pet route as you can see. These have been the jam for over a year now. ZERO issues. And I live in the humid bug ridden South for some perspective. About to purchase a few more for bulk sugar and flour too!
I hope you found this resource helpful and honest! And if you’re looking to better understand Kitchen Basics I’ve got you covered over on my How Tos!
