I have been working on making full use of a glass fronted cabinet I have in the kitchen. Some time back hubby bought some vintage green glass fruit jars up from the basement for me to clean up. We decided to store dried beans and pasta in them.
Last week I bought 4 half gallon fruit jars in green. We have a few vintage jars too, such as an Old Judge Coffee jar.
It looks like I might have to combine some bowls before long as the space is filling up quickly.
These were an auction purchase from a couple of years ago. Notice they were 65 cents for a box. All 3 boxes are full of nice shiny, new to me, lids. We thought we bought red rubber rings this week at the Mennonite store, but some how they didn't make it home with us.
We did however find Anasazi beans. You can't find these in most stores. These beans are estimated to be 1500 years old. In addition to being a good source of fiber, Anasazi beans are also an excellent source of potassium, folic acid and iron. While dry beans are known to contain certain carbohydrates that cause flatulence, the Anasazi bean has been found to contain less than 25 percent of these complex carbohydrates, making them much easier on the digestive system. We can't wait to try them.
