Every once in a while, we do an ‘Extreme Fridge Makeover’. We empty it, clean it and David rearranges the shelves so that we, ‘for the first time’, will have complete order in there. The air is filled with excitement as he explains the new strategy: ‘Okey Lul, listen now, vegetables go here, leftovers on the top shelf. And all your jars have their own shelf right here.’ He is good at planning stuff like that. And I can really see it works, in theory. The problem is that we are no good at following those instructions and in the midst of cleaning up after dinner, if I see an empty shelf, I go for it. And so does David, no matter what he claims. So six months later, we have to start all over again.

My jars, are definitely also part of the problem – the spreads, compotes, pâtés, nut butters, fermented cabbage and homemade sweeteners that tend to multiply all over the shelves. I imagine that a good solution would be to get an extra fridge, just for all our jars. The thing is, we don’t eat like traditional families. Many of our meals are accompanied by a side or a spread of some sort. Raw vegetable sticks, a bowl of goat’s cheese dip, some beans on the side or a jar of baba ganoush. It’s often all those bits and pieces that add up to a whole and satisfying meal.

We have collected a few of our favourite ‘jars’ here. But also a recipe for grain-free seed crackers, an unexpected ceviche and a plate of courgette and ricotta rolls. All of these small bites are not only good as side dishes, but would also be perfect on a buffet table.
