Do you still have the old style pickle jars?We have a large brown and white traditional jar that has been in our home since childhood. We would receive a parcel of pappads and pickles from my Dad's native place. His sister-in-law made the best mango pickles and red & yellow pappads the traditional way, and we would store the pickle in it. Once those parcels stopped since due to old age she would no longer make them, the jar lay empty for a while. Then it was found to be extremely useful to store the monthly packet of salt. In fact, in some homes, these jars are used to keep salt only, and a few years ago I was delighted to see a small one in a local shop. I bought it right away, and in it, I remove a little salt from the main packet and keep the small jar on the shelf next to the spices I use for cooking.
Do you have such a jar(s)? Is it still used for pickles and other condiments or for something else? We could even share photos of these very versatile jars.
