How can I reuse or recycle jars with shaker tops?
We’ve had an email from Natalie:
I’ve got a few plastic pots that I don’t know what to do with. They had herbs and ground pepper in so they have shaker tops or one side shaker, one side pour. Any ideas?
We use lots of spices so bulk buy them in bags and refill tubs like that for culinary convenience – so that’s one option.
On a slightly bigger scale, we’ve got a (very clearly marked) old table salt bottle filled with bicarbonate of soda – the bicarb comes in cardboard boxes to start with and the pour function makes it easier to, well, pour and the plastic bottle protects it better from moisture.
Any other suggestions?
