Dare to bare…your kitchen cupboards!
In an effort to give us an easy time for the busiest month, Dom has decided, that for our Random Recipes, we should open our larder and cupboard doors and show everyone what is inside! Now I like a nicely ordered cupboard, but my good intentions don’t seem to last long and everything always ends up shoved in. I’ve tried using tubs and jars to decant my ingredients, but it just doesn’t seem to work for me. I do have some little baskets to try to keep the little pots and jars in, but it could all do with a tidy up again.
Anyway, here goes:
I have a big double, floor to ceiling, larder unit and this is the shelf with all the random spices that don’t fit on the spice rack on the inside of the other door. At the front cinnamon, Colman’s mustard powder, La Chinata sweet smoked paprika, black peppercorns, a herb/spice rub and some beef oxo cubes.
In the shelf below I have more of the baking ingredients, that tub of Food Thoughts cocoa shouldn’t be in that basket, but has obviously been shoved in as I couldn’t get it in anywhere else. There are some bottles of food colouring, a jar of crystalised ginger and, over on the right, baking powder, cake release and vanilla extract.
This is the worst cupboard, pasta, rice, beans and a giant bag of granulated sugar I bought in my online shop without realising it was so big! The green box sticking up is vegetarian suet that I used for my mincemeat. I do have to say that there is not much in the way of out of date goods, I had a good clear out not that long ago.
I hope you enjoyed a look into my larder, if you’d like to join in pop in to Belleau Kitchen to find out more about this excellent blogger challenge.
