Spices on a Boat

By Carolyn Shearlock © 2012 • all rights reserved

Spices can be challenging on a boat, between heat, humidity and limited space.  But they add so much to your dishes!

I love spices and have written a number of articles relating to storing them, making your own mixes instead of using packets, the ones I consider essential and even a couple of lists of spice names in foreign langauges.

The articles below form a bit of a mini-series on spices in the galley.  Hope you’ll find them helpful!

  1. If you have a friendly local pharmacy, ask them to save up the “do not eat” silica gel packets they get in every bottle. Mine did, and i got a bunch from him in about a week. We put them in all the spice bottles along with our scripts then in zip locks. I use a straw to suck the air out as they are being zipped. Works great.

  3. If you buy in bulk put some in a small spice jar/bottle and store the rest well wrapped and in the dark. That way you always have spices, but they wont go bad…..or not much will go bad if you don´t use it a lot.

  4. I put up a wide strip of hooked velcro on the side of a cabinet and put a fuzzy velcro patch on the side of spice containers. Handy and easy to figure out what’s there.
