Canning is something my family has done in the past, and my aunt still does every year. When I decided to get into canning, I inherited my grandmother’s pressure canner (which still works great) from my mom, as well as a bunch more jars.
Then, after using a big stock pot for a couple years, my brother bought me the lovely water bath canning set I put on our wedding registry. (There might have been some mention of coming down to help me use it. lol) This is great! I’m set, and I can’t wait to break it out and put it to good use. Problem is, those pots all take up a lot of space. Add in the rings and lids and jars, and its A LOT of space.
Right now, they’re in what the fiance and I call the “Harry Potter” closet under the stairs. With several other things. Today’s mission is to try and get that cleaned up. I’m mentally trying to come up with a storage solution that will work, but I’m not having tons of luck. So we’ll see. I also have to bake for two different potlucks at school in the next two days, and a world cup kickoff get together we’re throwing tomorrow night. There’s a lot of things to do this evening.
Do you have any great ideas for small space storage of canning items? What have you come up with?
