Recently my family traveled to Florida and stayed in a condo with a full kitchen but, of course, there was no pantry items available for a rental. Have you ever had to buy twenty dollars worth of salt, pepper, and other spices you probably already have at home?
Here’s a simple solution… If you do a lot of traveling you’ll save some money by having a portable handy spice rack ready to go. This trick comes compliments of Chef Paul Stewart of Palmetto Bay Sunrise Cafe on Hilton Head SC and it’s a keeper. He says to use one of those inexpensive “day of the week” pill dispensers to act as your seven spice rack. It may not hold enough rub for a BBQ competition but it can probably store enough for a weekend at the beach.
Our suggestion: keep it in a zip-lock bag in the suitcase to keep your underwear from smelling like garlic. Unless you’re into that sort of thing.
