A while back I decided I needed some new containers for my bulk herbs and spices. I also knew I wanted glass with a wide mouth opening. Have you ever priced out jars like that? They are kind of pricey or maybe I'm just cheap but I wasn't going to pay that much. I thought wide mouth canning jars would be the best bet. I always have lots of those around....problem is I use them for canning and a quart wasn't quite big enough.
Then I noticed the peanut butter jars that I had saved.......Yeah it's sort of a sickness among a lot of herbalists; We love saving miscellaneous glass jars! It drives Ryan crazy! ;) The jars happen to be the perfect size to fit 1 pound of powdered herb in with a little bit of room to spare. I love it when I find good uses for my jars. And of course they needed proper labels.
Look I even put the Genus and Species name on them. (Yep the herbalist coming out in me again) Good stuff to know and it's educational for the kids too! To get the free download just click the icon below.
