Olde Thompson Spice Rack

Olde Thompson Spice Rack

I have been wanting to organize my spices for awhile now. I finally decided to buy me a spice rack already filled with 16 spices. That way I can clean out what I never use in my cupboard and get rid of any access. I wanted to have them all in one place. This is the first spice rack I have owned since I was in my early twenties.

I found this spice rack at Walmart when I was shopping with Mom Sunday. We originally went to look at jewelry that was marked down. Mom mention she wanted to look at the dishes and things like that. As we were browsing I saw the spice rack sets and remembered I wanted to buy one. Walmart offered this one and one other one. The other one had long slender jars.

I chose this one for the unique look of the spice jars. It is round like a ball. That fits great in my hand. The lid is round and flat, it screws on and off easily. The lid also lifts up on both sides, one side has holes like a salt and pepper shaker to shake the spice out. The other side is open to where you can pour larger amounts or dip a spoon in. The jars all are marked with the spice it is filled with.

The spice rack turns circles in either direction. To make it easier to find the spice you are looking for without moving them out one by one. Each spice jar can be placed in the spice rack by its lid. 

The 16 Spices  

Basil, Cinnamon, Coriander, Dill Weed, ground Fennel, Ginger, Herbs de Provence', Italian seasoning, Marjoram, Oregano, Paprika, Parsley, Rosemary, Sage, Savory, Thyme

I am not sure what some of these spices are. I plan to look them up and do some research to see what they are and how I can use them in a recipe.

My biggest dilemma -  Where should I place the spice rack?
1. In my spice cabinet hidden away.
2. Displayed on my counter.
3. Displayed on my wire rack on the top shelf.

Do you have a spice rack? How do you organize your spices?

  1. I have some displayed but they are in a built in wall area above the stove, I have the others on a lazy Susan in the cabinet, and more of the fresh picked and dried in fruit jars in the pantry. I like those round bottles.

    1. I would love to have something built in to a wall. I think the round ones are cute. Something different to stand out.

    1. If I had space I would want two of them as well. As I have some spices I like that aren't in this group of spices. Since, I don't have room, I figure I will end up changing a few spices if i don't like ir or don't use as often as another. I will switch them out.
