Organizing Flour

Recommended Posts

i have like 10 bags of flour that are all differnt in my cabinet. i want to transfer them into a canister or something and put them in deep drawers. any recs? how do you organize flours?


- gluten free since August 2007

- endoscopy came back negative for celiac in December 2007

- bloodwork confirms egg allergy

- allergy testing confirms only banana, apple, melon, egg and environmental allergies

i get hives anywhere on my waist down and less bloating/constipation when i do not eat wheat.

I have all my flours in one of those three drawer rolling carts in my kitchen. It works nice for me!

Some people organize like this

I know someone who uses the (Gladware?) stackable, disposable containers and labels them like those in the photo. The containers that one of the lunch meats(Hillshire farms?) comes in has a lid and is re-usable and is just the right size for the bags of tapioca starch that I buy.

My storage looks exactly like that picture. I even use lock and lock. I have 95% of my stuff in the fridge in the garage and the rest in the freezer in the garage. I just write directly on the container with a sharpie. As you know, when I want to make a batch of cookies, it takes me 2 or 3 trips to the fridge.

I use the lock and lock storage containers for my flours and write directly on them with a sharpy as well. I have a second fridge down stairs so I store my flours in there.

I like using the Lock'n'Lock containers that are about the same size as the flour bags. I keep them in the door of my big freezer since almost all of them say it is best to keep them refrigerated.

The ones that I use mixed together most frequently I keep premixed together in a larger container.


gluten-free since 2/10/08

EnteroLab results 4/18/08:

Antigliadin IgA 228 (Normal Range <10 Units)

Antitissue Transglutaminase IgA 191 Units (Normal Range <10 Units)

Anti-casein IgA antibody 127 Units (Normal Range <10 Units)

Guess I'm going CF now, too!

when I know I'm going to use them soon enough to no thave to freeze them, I just throw the bags themselve sinto a ginormous locknlock to keep the moth weevils out.

I keep my flours in quart or gallon ziploc bags in our extra refrigerator. I label them with the date and type of flour. It's inexpensive and saves space. I keep the ziploc bags of flour in a grocery bag so I can grab everything at once if I'm baking.
