Practical Tip Tuesday
Our farmhouse fridge feels a bit like a laboratory at times! There are so many jars of home-made creations, we often have no clue of the contents or how fresh they are. There is the kefir, skimmed milk, raw cream, homemade mayonnaise, handmade ricotta cheese, whipped cream, leftover meal containers, etc! It can be especially challenging to keep track of our milk supply when our goat is lactating (which jar has the oldest milk?). This is where our handy tip comes into action! My sister-in-law taught it to me while staying here for the week a few month's back (don't you love this kind of bonding where you can learn from one-another?).
Using a basic marker (like a Sharpie), simply write the contents (and date if necessary) on your glass containers and jars before adding the foodstuff (as the marker won't work on a damp or moist glass). The writing will come off easily with a sponge and soapy water (no scrubbing is necessary)! This will work on any glass surface and can conveniently be used for other impromptu labeling in your kitchen cupboard and pantry as well. It is so simple, yet why hadn't I done this before?
Can you see yourself using this idea? If so, what would your purpose be?
