Pantry

Pantry is a state of mind.

A well-provisioned pantry is the backbone of true cottage economy. Your pantry creates a buffer between your household and hard times. Gleaming jars of preserved tomatoes and applesauce, tins of canned fish, and oils in dark-colored bottles are a pleasure to look upon, bringing a deep sense of well-being to the cottager’s thrifty heart. These provisions will carry you through busy weeks when you can’t get to the grocery store or times of brief illness when it is not desirable or possible.
