What are you getting rid of in your pantry?
« on: March 14, 2011, 04:19:52 am »
I have had a search and can't find this topic anywhere.
 I am updating my cupboard and finding a lot of the Tupperware can now be used for something else. 
So far-
Custard powder (GONE!!!!) now will be muffin mix (from lunchbox recipe book)
Rock salt will replace cooking salt (unless someone gives me a reason not to?)
Icing sugar and caster sugar GONE, replaced by raw sugar..  Should I get rid of white sugar too?
Lots of new nuts into containers- cashews, hazelnuts (ooh and chocolate!!!!)

So what have people deleted from their pantries??

jaclom, we use rock salt in the Vegie Stock Concentrate so I wouldn't get rid of that item.
Agree icing sugar and castor sugar can go, particularly the castor sugar.  I use white sugar here but others do use the raw variety. I do resort to buying icing sugar sometimes if using it for icing as I find TMX one a bit gritty.

JD she is keeping the rock salt and ditching the cooking salt  ;)

my pantry undergoes overhauls regularly as things go and never make it back - even after 2 1/2 years as I learn new things :)

Oops, thanks Kathryn. Been busy for 2 days changing rooms, moving furniture and spring cleaning cupboards.  Every now & then have come on here for a rest but obviously my brain has been overworked this weekend  :-)) :-))

I have noticed a few items disappearing from my shopping list, my groceries bill has definitely dropped as well. I no longer buy Worcestershire sauce, mayonnaise, stock cubes, custard powder, bread rolls, prepared sauces (like Chicken tonight) Lasagna, Pizza, peanut butter, brown sugar, icing sugar, jams. And the list goes on. But I do seem to have a wide variety of other ingredients that I never brought before.

Judydawn- True True!!
Dede mentions getting rid of brown sugar..  Don't any of the recipes call for it? Or is there a substitute?

I still use soft brown sugar for lots of things, maybe dede means raw sugar as that is brown.

Thank you Judydawn for clearing that up!!  My family think I am quite mad clearing out my pantry!!!  Not too mad though..  the girls are making butter every week and choc/hazelnut spread every few weeks.  Also have made strawberry and fig jam though both were runny.  Maybe I need to add jamsetta next time.  going to try tomato puree soon too.  I love the stock- still on my first batch.. Oooh love the lemonade too, and have made a yummy ginger ale using water from the sodat stream...  It's all so healthy and without additives!!
