When the SPRING and SUMMER seasons arrive, there is much activity going on around the farm. . .outside and in. . .and the FARMHOUSE KITCHEN certainly sees its share of baking, canning, and home grown meals. . .With the prospect of it being no different this year, I decided to stock many of the of the necessities close at hand in GIANT CROCKS and GLASS STORAGE JARS. . .
Canning supplies are hidden in the #8 CROCK. . .baking needs and miscellaneous in the others. . .
A huge canister of flour for breads, biscuits, and cakes. . .10 pounds of beans ready for measure. . .to cook with ham or sausage Creole style (Yum). . .I can leave them simmering all morning on the stove while I'm working in the garden or doing other chores. . .so typical of farm ladies over the years. . .
Large chopping boards clean and ready. . .The bin filled with coffee, sugar, canning salt. . .
Next week you'll find me in the kitchen. . .canning PUMPKIN BUTTER (Recipe HERE) from the puree I froze last Fall. . .Then a few jars of JAMS (One Recipe HERE). . .(Another Recipe HERE). . .Afterwards followed by SAUERKRAUT (Recipe HERE) with the super bargains of cabbage going on right now. . .Won't be long until we have strawberries. . .I have a new recipe for STRAWBERRY BREAD that I'm dying to try. . .Everything will be at hand now . . .LOVE IT!!!!!
How about you? Are you ready to go BIG in the kitchen (grin)
and hide the clutter in plain sight?
. . .sending your way. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
I love all of your sweet pieces! Have a nice weekend.
Be a sweetie,
Love your farmhouse kitchen and everything in it! Have a great weekend! Diane
Gorgeous little cabinet pantry in crocks! Ready for summer work! Everything just says sweet country!
Love, love, love everything about your kitchen. It must be a real joy cooking in there!! Thanks for sharing...:)
We have been thinking about strawberry jam too. Strawberries prices in the store are coming down and the early spring berries are always so good! Also, I never made cherry jam from the those that I picked last summer, still int he freezer. But now would be a good time to get it done!
I just got a red Fiesta crock from my kitchen utensils. Our drawer space was rather limited. We are loving it! Everything is so handy now!
I love the large containers for baking goods also. Even though my kitchen is small, I keep them on my counters. Love all the cast iron you have!
By the way, goosebumps about the last post--beautiful! ♥
I love it! I like that you are using the old crocks to store and hide baking/cooking supplies and tools. It looks really nice.
I just love everything about your kitchen...beautiful photos!!
Everything looks so lovely!!! I am always ready to go BIG in the kitchen :)
Love all of the big old crocks! Everything looks great!
Hi there I just came upon you're blog. How refreshing to see such down home decor! I live in an old 1950s little farm cottage. It's been built into and is still only 1300 sq ft. I love your style and taste! And I'm enjoying the pictures and postings.
We're in the final stretch of a several years' re-do of a Dutch colonial. My head is spinning with kitchen ideas. I'm already collecting glass containers of all sorts + sizes. The crocks! Genius! TY for the inspiration!
I so love love your kitchen..
Wish I could sit there and have a cup of tea...
