Many of you have written to us and asked for foolproof, leakproof ways to take soup to the office. Well, we really liked this tip from reader myskinnygarden in the Soup Week post comments. She uses a canning jar, and here's why!
It's no secret that we here at The Kitchn love buying from the bulk section of the market. Whether we are looking for a small amount of spices or large amounts of grains, shopping in the bulk section saves money, minimizes waste, and inspires us to try out new pantry ingredients.
