5 indispensables in the kitchen

Lists are fun...I don't do enough list on the blog, so here is one today. First, I don't think I have to say, but this is not an exhaustive list. Just 5 things I'm loving and use all the time. Can't image not having these 5 in my kitchen. 

1. Big knife
Maybe it's wrong to use this knife for everything, but it works for almost everything...great for chopping veggies, nuts, fruit, bread. I keep it sharp with a knife honing steel.

2. Silicone baking mat

A Christmas gift that keeps on giving. I love it. It gets whipped out whenever I use a baking sheet. I don't have a proper sized baking sheet (half sheet), but I make it work and wedge it in there. Nothing sticks to it but over time is gets somewhat stained and greasy.


3. Silicone moulds for chocolate making

Since I started making raw chocolate, one of the best tools I've bought are silicone moulds. I think they make the chocolate taste better too. My first attempt though, was a bit of a gong show.

4. Citrus juicer
Juicing by hand is totally fine, but after getting a citrus squeezer ($5 at ikea), the job is easier and I waste less. It gets used more for volume orders like zippy lemonade pops.

5. Jar funnel

This was bought on a whim at Princess Auto (Craig's store not mine). Only $1. Makes filling mason jars less messy.

What are your indispensable 5?
