Kitchen Keeping: Ramekin Cupboard

Yesterday Emma talked about ramekins and their vast usefulness in the kitchen. Well, we all have a thing for ramekins here at The Kitchn. Some of us more than others...

I confess that I have perhaps a few too many ramekins, but I just find them so useful! I use them for beating eggs for one, as prep cups for cooking, and serving dishes for ice cream and pudding and yogurt, and... you get the idea. I have white ramekins, blue ramekins, yellow and red and green ramekins.

When I moved into my new kitchen I found that I had one cupboard that was impractically narrow and shallow for nearly everything I wanted to put inside. Then inspiration flashed: a ramekin cupboard!

Frankly, putting all my ramekins in that cupboard made me feel more at home in my kitchen than I ever had before. They look neat and put away, and I always know where I can find a little dish.

Do you have a special cupboard for any particular collections?
