day 13 repurposing a jar
day 13 repurposing a jar :: kitchen
jars are great for storing dried food items, especially the ones bought in bulk. around here 2 of the 5 of us are gluten-free, so this method works great for gluten-free flours. having the jars labeled with measurements gives you an idea of how much ingredient is left in the jar. for labeling with chalkboard painted lids, see day 5.
using a measuring cup, measure & pour the ingredient into jar. at that height, wrap a rubber band around jar, use this as a guide to draw a straight line with a permanent marker
