Pantry pictures

DH got the concrete work done in the old cellar a few weeks ago, and last week I finally got all my canned goods put away. I've had them spread out on my kitchen/dining room floor since I started canning back in August.

People say you should cook from scratch, but I have no problem grabbing three or four jars to make a meal.

Wow! One can learn so much from a picture. What a neat idea to use the original boxes from your jars to cover the prepared ones with. Keeps dust off & makes for much saver stacking of a top row. thanks for sharing!

Old Swampgirl, right now I have lots of boxes, but I guard them well. I'm not sure what I'll do several years from now when I'm using jars I've had around for a while and the boxes have worn out.

I bring a lot of extra produce in to work, and I tell people, take what you want, but don't take my boxes!!!!

Cathy, most of my boxes wore out long ago so this is what I did. Most of these boxes are from motor oil (I had an old truck that used so much oil, it needed its own refinery!). Rebend the top flaps a bit and they hold 24 pint jars (with a layer of cardboard between layers). This is most of this years' canning. I put it in my pole barn so I would be forced to use the rest of last years canning, which is in the house. The boxes have labels on the front so I know what's inside.



The barn looks like a farmer's market.

I noticed there is a lot of other type of "lubricant" boxes in there too!

I have found the best place to get nice boxes is the liquor store. They go through a lot and they are sturdy boxes too.

SO envious!!!! Even DH looked over and was impressed ("look at how tidy it is!")...I was more impressed by the amount you put up this season! Something to strive for here!
