Whole Coriander Seeds. I recently bought some to make Amy Pennington’s Quick Carrot Pickles from her ultra-wonderful book, urban pantry. There was no good place to fit them into our spice drawer. I can’t control very much in my life (we are close to having our eleven month anniversary of our former home being still on the market!), but I was going to make this little drawer in my little world all better. After living in our new house almost five months now, this organizing system for our spices has been darn handy. Visually, the names of the spices on the bottle tops were sort of hard to read though.
I didn’t want to spend any money for a fix, and it seemed wasteful to get all new matching containers. I created matching white circle labels from a surplus of name tags and a crafting hole punch.
With a little purging of a few drawer items, there was room for the whole coriander seeds. And all was right with this little drawer. The carrot pickles were a big winner too!
