If you have a set of Four Canisters on Your Kitchen Counter,

What do you use them for?

 

I know most people put flour and sugar in the two largest ones, but what do you put in the smaller ones?  My girls and I were talking about this.  What exactly were they made to store?

I put powdered sugar in the smaller ones. If it's really small i will use it to store tea bags.

Tea in one and buddy's medication in the other. They are tin so you can't see thru them anyway. And the biggest one holds sugar packs.

Mine hold sugar, flour, brown sugar, and corn starch.  I also have an extra set of 2 that are supposed to be for coffee & filters that I have powdered sugar & tea bags in. 

 

I have an old set of my Grandma's that say on them: flour, sugar, coffee, & tea.  I don't remember what she ever put in the smallest ones, but I know it wasn't coffee & tea!

Dh told me he thought one was supposed to be used for corn starch.  Does your brown sugar stay fresh in there?  I keep my brown sugar in the refrigerator.

 

In my two smaller ones, I keep tea--one is for black tea and the other for herbal tea.

I only use three, as I keep my flour in the freezer to prevent bugs....but in my three, I keep sugar, tea bags, and Splenda packets.

Flour, Sugar, brown sugar and tea bags.

 

My brown sugar stays fine, but mine are tupperware so they seal tight.

I don't have a matching set - I have the remainders of several sets - what's left after some have gotten dropped and broken, cracked in the dishwasher, etc.

Since we have had mealworms before, I keep anything they might like to munch in canisters - flour, sugar, corn meal, dry beans, quinoa, pasta, rice, dog biscuits.

I freeze my flour first and then I fill up my canister when it gets low.   I just thought cold flour might affect the outcome of what I was baking.  Does it?  Do you need to let it get to room temperature first?

Nope.  I take it straight from the freezer.  :)
