    Default New uses for a couple of oldtimers

    Ferreting in the back of an upper shelf, I found my old Tupperware
    salt and pepper shakers from my boating days (nonbreakable, airtight
    etc). Hmm.....what to do. "Goodwill? Wait, kid. " I washed and set
    em aside, knowing ideas would spring forth eventually.

    The other day, I wanted to sprinkle the smallest dash of sugar on the
    muffins before baking. Last night, wanted to do the same with
    paprika on my oven fries (helps me spot the ones still to be
    turned..) Yay- new uses.
    I just need to label em so I don't get paprika on muffins by
    accident.

    I agree. Shakers are good for a lot more than S&P. I also use one for
    paprika, as well as fine hickory salt, finely ground rubs for barbecue, and
    more. I have seven or eight in service at this point, and a few of them are
    glass with the stainless tops where you can swivel a cover to open three
    different sizes of hole sets.

    I tried flour in one of em - holes too small. Flour just jammed the
    holes. Why did I want a bit of flour? Dusting the countertop for
    bread dough handling. So, it was back to my old glass jar with a few
    holes punched in the lid.

    But aren't they already labeled? Just put the sugar in the salt
    shaker and the paprika in the pepper shaker.
    I'm assuming one is marked S and the other P?

    Mine are labeled 'salt' and 'pepper'. We make pizza pretty often, and I use
    one of them to sprinkle just the right amount of olive oil on top before it
    goes in the oven. I keep it by the stove, so anything that needs just a
    sprinkle of OO gets the right amount.

    I thought about that, but the lettering has long since left
    visibility. These things have to be 25 years old at least. Plus, my
    trusty Sharpie fat point can make its mark.

    Not a bad idea. I make do with a cruet from which I can shake out the
    drops of OO I need for oiling pans etc.
    ..
    By the by, I don't put OO on my pizza crust. I slather it with tomato
    sauce for the first 8 minute stage of baking. Then I remove, add rest
    of toppings, and pop back into oven for another 10 minutes or so.

    What's wrong with paprika on muffins? Not a muffin fan in any case, but
    we have made savoury muffins.

    OTOH the shakers with the variable lids are also good for finishing a
    dessert with powdered sugar and for ground cinnamon, nice, no clumping.

    Now I'm on the hunt for some variable top shakers with a larger glass jar.
    Sometimes I need to have enough rub for several briskets and pork butts and
    once.

    Besides shakers, I'm a squirt bottle fan. I buy them in six packs and they
    come with a very narrow tip. Then you can cut the tip for whatever will be
    kept in it to get the right flow, and olive oil is a good example where a
    narrow tip is nice. Not the same as a sprinkle but well controlled
    nevertheless.

    Or sugar on oven fries?

    I HAVE sprinkled black pepper on oatmeal, when I meant to grab the
    cinnamon. I have those in identical clear shakers on back of the
    stove and can only go by color. On a particularly foggy-minded
    morning, I've grabbed the wrong one.

    Do you remember those ingenious but messy traditional honey servers like
    a grooved ball on a stick? They have been rightly replaced by squeeze
    bottles these days.

    We do that on race weekends for camping at the track. I make the batter
    ahead of time, and throw it in a squeeze bottle. Saves mixing at the
    track, and of course you use what you want and throw the bottle back in
    the cooler for the next day...

    Clue: Paprika is red; granulated sugar is usually white. HTH.

    Hah!! THAT's a fine idea. I use a parmesan cheese shaker like this

    Let's see. . . start with, say, pint size canning jars. Or
    regular-mouth (not wide mouth) quart size.

    Get the two-piece lid and ring cover * you can buy them by the box. You
    could poke holes in one of the metal lids and secure it with the ring to
    make your shaker top. To cover the holes for storage or transport,
    simply add another, unpoked, lid to it before securing the two of them
    with the ring. You're welcomečanytimečhappy to help. :-)

    I hate plastic for honey. My house is colder than what honey likes so
    it crystallizes and plastic doesn't do well with sweet stuff inside
    when I microwave it.

    I have something that I guess is for flour then, I was told it was
    meant for powdered sugar. It's just as easy to sprinkle flour on the
    surface though.

    I keep honey in a glass jar. I've got plenty of glass jars around, so if I
    buy honey in a plastic container I can just dispense it into a glass jar
    when I get it home.
