Glass Bottles

Do you remember when I went to the crack seed store a couple months ago? 

I was amazed at the bulk kakimochi that was there, and I asked Mr. Young how he managed to keep them fresh and crunchy despite the humidity here. 

He said two words. "Glass bottles."

And so . . . I am now a glass bottle hoarder. 

Because his words are true.

Interesting! IF I should ever have left over crackers or kaki mochi, that is :)

I finally learned a few years back to put all of my dry food in my pantry in glass bottles. The reason why I decided to do it is because I had a bag of oats in my pantry. Somehow there were little bugs in it and they grew and spread into everything in my pantry.

I had to move everything out, spray bug spray and wipe down. Now with using glass I have no problem at all. I use the glass for Rice, Pinto Beans, 10 bean mix, etc.

Me too - I "hoard" glass bottles. Daiso has some neat ones. Ikea has some that are heavy and look like crack seed store bottles. I can only bring back one or two when I go there since it is a little crazy to bring that kind of stuff back from the mainland but it makes me happy. And what do I put in them? Li hing mui!

Really? Glass bottles? Not plastic? Hmmmmm.... interesting!

I hoard glass bottles too and started using them to store food. Plastic has too many issues unless it’s BPA free.

V, LOL, I know what you mean.

Mark, I hate those bugs.

Aunty, li hing mui!!

Kat, I know, yah!

Kay, now when I think about it, glass does seem impenetrable.

Susan, I agree.
