Flour Shaker

This clever idea is the brainchild of canner and fellow Portland, Oregon expat Jessica Smedley. She recently picked up a few of these punched out canning jar lids, popped on a jar of all-purpose flour and had herself an instant flour shaker.

I’ve recently started feeding and using my sourdough starter again (I am amazed that I didn’t manage to kill it during many months of neglect this summer) and regularly find myself needing to dust my countertop with a little flour before kneading my bread dough. This little rig would be just the thing to make that task a little easier.

If you want to set up your own flour shaker, you can buy these lids from the folks at Fillmore Container. Thanks for sharing your idea, Jessica!
