Look! Spices Stored in Jam Jars

Look! Spices Stored in Jam Jars

Sometimes we think that the average spice jar is really too small for our needs. You can't even fit a teaspoon into some of those narrow jars, and it also seems like we're always refilling ours. Well, take a look at this recycled solution for spice storage.

All those jars started life as Bonne Maman jam jars, and we like how they've found new life as spice containers! The 13-ounce jars are big enough for plenty of spices, which is nice for those of us who use tablespoons at a time in curries and other spicy dishes. It's also great to see recycling in use, of course.

And you can't go wrong with Bonne Maman jam; we really like their Four Fruits Preserves.
