One of the main sources of frustration in the kitchen is locating and identifying spices.
Is there a best way to organize spices so you can easily identify and quickly reach for them when you’re in the middle of preparing a meal?
There’s a lot to consider including your space limitations, the number of spices you have in regular rotation, the variety of spice containers you already have, the amount of time you’re willing to dedicate to sorting and organizing and to what degree you’d like your spice collection to resemble a pinterest page.
There are numerous ways to organize spices.
If you’re more of a creative and visual type, you may decide to display spices on the wall next to the stove in a mixed array of colourful containers.
If you’re a minimalist, you’re more likely to keep spices in a cupboard in uniformly sized jars.
If you’re very pragmatic (like me) you may choose to keep spices colour-coded for type in a drawer next to the stove.
In this video, I share a few tips that I hope will help you organize your spices for efficiency and aesthetics.
