I do have an active jar of peanut butter in my cupboard though (non-refrigerated).
that's a topic for another thread though
Misread thread title as 'jam jars'.
Will recalculate now...
I suspect half are active, a quarter are depending on if you abide by BBE dates (I don't, and those things in question are largely in oil / vinegar) and another quarter are growing new forms of life.
- 2 pesto (Chilli one was a bit shit, back to good ol' green)
- A few Lazy products as they were on offer (chopped chilli, garlic)
- 3 types of chutney (one from 2011)
- 3 Pastes (Lemongrass, hoi sin, minced ginger)
- At least 6 types of conserve (lemon marmalade, posh orange one, strawberry jam, cherry jam, blackcurrant jam, etc)
- Think there was some tartare sauce / cranberry sauce too
(Though I question if these truly need refrigeration anyhow)
We've got SIX jars of mustard in the cupboard waiting to be activated. Exciting.
Royts ramp my previous guess of 5 up to 9 pronto
my fridge is pretty bare though
One active jar of honey in the cupboard though
Including various jams / marmalade, curry paste, horseradish sauce, mustards, pickle. Mayo's in a squeezy bottle at the moment IIRC.
Not sure, if I was going to guess, and I am, it would be about 5 jars.
From memory, about ten. There were more but i had a bit of a clearout recently when I discovered some mayo that had expired two years ago, which means that I almost certainly bought it when I lived in Manchester and have carted it with me to London and around the three flats I’ve lived in since moving there. Grim. I also threw out a nearly done jar of patas which looked a bit fusty. I think actually i have more than ten.
Tomato pickle and branston pickle. Also one peanut butter, in the cupboard OF COURSE
msmonipenni made me some lemon curd. I got that. I haven't done a big shop since moving to the new flat.
I'd like some raspberry and cherry jam.
Weird sweet chutney
Sun dried tomatoes
You knew that mentioning your made-up gaylord jar of ponce would incite a comment, AND IT GOT THE COMMENT IT DESERVED.
Apple and Walnut chutney
they're al the mrs' crap. 3 types of mustard mate! Never even eat one type of mustard
Al, come say hi!
1 x pesto
1 x gherkins (whole)
1 x mayo (light)
1 x easy garlic (shut up)
1 x weird chutney from my dad's deli
Think that's everything.
as I'm moving soon and I hate taking anything I can manage to get rid of in the meantime but normally my shelf in the fridge is about 90% jars. They're all coming to the end of their contents but still to use:
some other pickle
but it's been in there a very long time, and I don't know why I keep it - one morning I accidentally spread it on my crumpets and didn't realise until I had a mouthful :(
I know you can get one from ocado too.
If you're stuck, you can get thsi stuff from Arran-http://www.taste-of-arran.co.uk/item.asp?itemid=109
does this work?
- Dijon mustard
- Wholegrain mustard
- English mustard
- Berry conserve
- Cherry conserve
- Hellmann's mayonnaise
- Posh mayonnaise with garlic in it
- Chilli chutney
- Another chutney I can't remember
- Goose fat
- Red pesto
- Green pesto
- Green olives
- Harissa paste
Don't think that's all of 'em neither
weeeeeeeeelll la-di-daa mr high society
Don't really notice much of a difference.
Dripping's the best thing to roast potatoes in, and that's about 50p for a massive brick of the stuff...
proper food for proper folk
Got bread 'n' drippin' for tea tonight.
I have some homemade damson cheese but we keep it in an old takeaway box rather than a jar.
1 x blueberry jam
1 x thai green curry paste
1 x pickled onions
1 x red jalapenos
1 x green olives
my housemate has
1 x strawberry jam
that makes 6 active jars
Do you keep jars longer than recommended "once opened"?
Pesto says about 3 days on it, and everyone else in my family goes mad on throwing it out, but I can keep a jar of Sacla going for around 6 weeks, no problem.
if it's not growing mould, it's fair game
that recommends you consume it within two weeks. I've had it for about 6 months and it's perfectly fine
homemade carrot chutney
homemade sort of marmalade that turned out a bit crap and I'm probably not going to eat
blackcurrant jam made by boyfriend's mum
8? There's probably more.
Italian tomato puree
Traditional Dijon mustard
Rose harissa paste
Pickled hot peppers
Kitchen cupboards aren't very cool. Just take it out 30 mins before use.
A man your age shouldn't troll.
Can I come and live in your fridge please?
if I could live with the fig jelly and rose harissa paste.
history's greatest monster
(amirite coffee squad?)
They're never as good either. We just bought some once as the shop was out of proper ginger and are still using it up
I’d wager at least 3 kinds of jam
Chutney (maybe 2 chutneys actually, possibly 3)
2 x curry paste (one Thai green that should probably be binned now that I think about it, the other a more Indian style)
Goose fat (maybe we finished that actually, can’t remember)
Maybe some more. Plus a load of non-fridgeable stuff in the cupboard (mustards, peanut butter, nutella, branstons pickle).
Red onion chutney
Unopened in the cupoard:
Cotswald fruit and ale chutney
Cheap marmalade for my unmade marmalad cake
Top shelf FULL.
Need a clear out.
there were 4 half-finished jars of lemon curd.
in the fridge, simply because the jar/bottle says to.
will ask tonight
That'll be fun.
Seedless raspberry jam
Whole grain mustard
More garlic purée
especially the double garlic entry
1 full shelf. 1 full on door shelf.
16 types of chilli sauce.
loves a condiment
I think I may have gone off the Dominos garlic and herb dip afetr making myself really sick with it a few weeks ago. I think the dips might have been lingering in my fridge for too long (I stockpile around 15 or so at a time.)
Have many pickles?
I have cornichons, pickled onions, pickled walnuts and caperberries. I also have pickled chillies.
(If you can get the film I'm quoting you win a jar of chilli sauce)
