Nope, That's Not Strawberry Jam
A few months ago, I noticed that most grocery items that used to come in glass jars now come in plastic containers of some sort. I have a feeling that in the near-future, my salsa will come in some kind of flimsy compostable plastic baggie. I don't use many jars now but I know that someday, I'm going to need one and regret not saving enough during the glass jar heyday.
At least this is what I tell myself when I look at the collection of jars in my cupboard.
They do come in handy though. For dinner tonight, I made southwest salads and decided to mix up some dressing. I threw everything in a jar and then shook it. And seriously, a few shakes of a jar is way more effective than a whisk can ever be.
One thing I need to start doing is removing the original labels and marking the contents on the lids. Finding salad dressing in a jelly jar isn't that bad, but there's an old salsa jar holding chipotle peppers in adobo sauce in our fridge and opening that by mistake might be a bit traumatic. xo
