I first saw this tip on pinterest and knew I had to try it for myself. When you have finished a jar of grated parmesan or romano cheese save the lid and wash it thoroughly. (I washed mine in the basket in the top rack of my dishwasher). These lids fit the mouths of regular pint or quart canning jars.
I had already stored salt in one pint jar and today I transferred cornstarch to another. No more storing baking supplies in plastic bags or boxes. I really like using glass for storage because I can now see through it. I love that the lid has 2 options, a shaker side and a wide opening for measuring spoons to fit in and level off. I think these lids will keep the contents fresher for a longer period of time too.
Now I just need to break out my P-Touch and label the jars with the content’s name and expiration date. An organized pantry is such a ‘good thing’ don’t you think?! 🙂
