My friends over at Lemondrop.com asked me what is my favorite multi-use item for the home. After a moment's thought, I realized that my favorite item is definitely a glass jam jar, specifically the Bonne Maman ones. Every time I finish a jar of jam I rinse out the jar, soak off the label and re-use it as a container to store leftover quantities of pantry staples, like almonds, walnuts, barley and lentils (above). The pretty red and white tops look great in your cabinets and the jars are a good size to store that last cup or two of a particular item.
