Organizing Baking Ingredients

Kitchen Tip Button

Last week’s kitchen tip was about putting away ingredients as you use them.  I find that particularly easy to do with certain ingredients that I keep on a magnetic strip.

I have an area of counter space where I do my baking.  My gluten-free flours are stored in the cabinets directly above this area.  On the wall below those cabinets, I have a magnetic strip (which I bought at Ikea) with magnetic spice containers attached to it.

My strip holds eight containers, and I chose to put the following commonly used items in them:

  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • cinnamon
  • gelatin
  • guar gum
  • salt
  • sugar
  • xanthan gum

I have labels on the top of each container which you can’t see well in the picture.  I keep them in alphabetical order so they are always in the same place, and I know where to reach for each item as I need it.

When I’m baking, these containers make it so easy to reach for and return the ingredients for which I only need 1 or 2 teaspoons.
