Jars and bottles

Last week, I went to Ikea to buy fancy kitchen storage jars. I’ve started buying pulses and stuff in huge, hugely cheap 2kg bags. Unfortunately this means leaving open bags of lentils on the worktops. And lentils get everywhere.

Only I bought too many jars. I figured ‘can’t have too many’.

Today I found myself buying more, different pulses, just to use the jars up.

Anyone got good chick-pea recipes? I thought not…

    I’m always interested in good things to do with pulses because everything I come up with on my own tastes a bit… thin.

    It would be nice to make some hummus, but when I remember to look, I can’t find any tahini.
