A Cry for Help
I have a problem. It involves going to the grocery, gourmet shop, nifty Asian/Middle Eastern/Latino market or on vacation and buying interesting food items and then not knowing what to do with them. My sneaking suspicion is that most people who are interested in all things food have similar issues, or perhaps they are brilliant and always know what to do with the strange things they find lurking in their cupboards.
Left to right: Cherry jam, cherry-chipotle sauce, sweet red beans, whole mace (what was I thinking?), lime oil, caraway seeds (purchased to make Irish soda bread which the partner hates), pomegranate vinegar, pomegranate molasses, elderflower syrup and chili oil. Not pictured: squid ink pasta (how long can pasta last in the pantry?), Israeli couscous, whole grain spelt, two(!) jars of lemon curd, walnut oil and frozen wonton skins.
Please help these foodstuffs find their out of the pantry and onto our plates. Any and all assistance is much appreciated. Thank you.
I am running out of storage space
