A well stocked spice cabinet is an essential for the home cook. While you may find it easier to go out and buy one of those big rotating spice racks with little glass bottles of powdered spices, its expensive. It’s especially so if you continue buying those little glass bottles at the grocery store. They’re really convenient but are way, WAY overpriced. Instead, make a trip to an asian or other ethnic food store and stock up there. You’ll find they have a much wider selection at a fraction of the cost. Their spices come in bags though, so start saving all the bottles you can get your hands on. My spice cabinet is full of re-purposed salsa and mustard jars.
