What Do You Have Too Much Of?Posted by in Organizing
I’m tied up with a new project I should be able to tell you all about very soon, but it means my Martha cooking time is limited. So I thought I would take a moment and reflect upon a growing problem in my kitchen. I am overrun with jellies/jams and mustards.
Here is the current list:
wild blueberry jam
strawberry rhubarb jam
apple pie jam
strawberry vanilla jam
passion fruit jelly
guava strawberry jelly
damson plum jelly
store brand yellow
Grey Pouopn country style Dijon
sharp and creamy
Rayes (a Martha’s Pick I haven’t used up)
Weber’s (a local horseradish mustard)
sweet apple mustard
Clearly this is out of control, but the thing is we do use all of it. Admittedly, I have a problem because I like to buy jelly on trips (damson plum from Cape Cod, guava, passion fruit from Hawaii) but people also give me inordinate amounts. Everyone in this house has an individual mustard preference, some requiring different mustards for different things, but I also tend to end up receiving a lot of mustards in gift baskets. And I just can’t bring myself to throw any out.
