We are trying to rid our lives of as much plastic as possible (AS POSSIBLE, it's darn near everywhere!). When it comes to foods I am even more vigilent. I store everything in glass jars with ss lids. I use SS and wooden utensils, etc. But when it comes to bulk food storage I have hit a wall. I can store my bulk spices in large canning jars but what about my rice and chick peas?
