    Dear ladies,

    How do you store salt and other such sensitive/reactive stuff in your kitchen like tamarind/jaggery? I am confused which is the ideal container to buy to store salt,whether ceramic/glass. Please suggest some ideas. I used to store salt in plastic container and once it reacted and started turning blue(both the salt and the plastic spoon) I now use wooden spoons in my pickle jars.

    @kalcandu spoons should be removed from pickle jars. i use a fresh spoon everytime i serve.

    salt ideal ceramic or glass. olden days great grandma stored it in mud pots. then the traditional ceramic jar/ peengan jadi/ bharni.. 8DA3DD50-A577-4549-B01E-0C07D906FCDC.jpeg

    same goes for tamarind and pickles.

    my ready to serve pickles even sugar for coffee are again in smaller ceremic jars.like this

    Thanks a lot Shanvy. I once tried storing salt in a bharni but the opening is too narrow to grab the spoon.also very heavy to lift and replace on shelf every time while cooking. Small glass container seems like a good idea. Thanks.

    Ya olden days were so nice because people lived in joint families and had a great collection of peengan jadis of amazing sizes. My mom and grandma have an enviable collection of glass and ceramic containers but they are oversized for my family size. I am also scared of using glass in my kitchen as I can be clumsy in handling them. I have glass container only to store small quantity of pickle in fridge.
