Long gone are the days of containers with sharpie scribbles of gluten free written all over them. We can step up our game and not be ashamed of the way our labeled gluten-free food-filled containers look!
I recently welcomed the addition of Gluten Free Labels to my household’s kitchen. My gluten-free tub of butter no longer has my scribbles on it, but instead it has a cute, little g-free sticker! I no longer have to write all over the tops and sides of jars because Kelly, the creator of Gluten-Free Labels, has done something that our community has needed for ages – she created a classy way for us to label our food!
In a Shared Kitchen:
Gluten Free Labels are a MUST for a shared kitchen and can help you prevent unfortunate cross-contamination issues from occurring. They would have been a Godsend when I was in college sharing a kitchen with my roommates, but it’s better late than never, right?
I received the Gluten Free Labels Starter Kit in the mail and was ecstatic. The starter kit contains a variety of dishwasher safe labels included 8 circle labels, 12 mini labels, 2 customizable rectangular labels, AND 2 silicon tags, all for $14.99! The first thing I did when I opened up my starter kit was stick one of the circle labels on my container of butter. I always go through this process of “Wait, which one is mine and which one is the gluten-eater of the household’s?” It was great to finally remedy that confusing situation.
The second thing I did with my starter kit was put the silicon tag to use! Just days before receiving the labels in the mail I was 0.2 seconds away from being glutened from a dirty pan that looked clean, so it was a relief to stick the tag on there and not have to worry anymore!
One thing that I think is fantastic about my starter kit is the dishwasher safe labels! Now we can simply designate certain containers to hold only gluten-free food, taking away A LOT of the worry surrounding food mix-ups in shared kitchens.We won’t have to worry about the sharpie markings fading in the dishwasher when we have these great labels!
In regards to the little stickers that you can place on butter, peanut butter, jam, and other similar, you can easily reuse those too! If you usually purchase the same brand of products every time, when one runs out, just put the lid with the label on the new container and voila, you’re labeled and ready to go! Talk about recycling, eh?
At a Party or Potluck:
There’s nothing worse than creating delicious food and setting up a beautiful buffet display, and then ruining it with the words gluten free scribbled on scrap paper. Don’t let the party atmosphere suffer when labeling! Keep it classy with gluten free labels:
- Stick a gluten-free label on the pan or dish that holds the gluten-free food.
- Stick gluten-free flags in the gluten-free treats on the dessert table.
- Loop a silicon tag around the gluten-free serving spoon.
On Adult Beverages:
Ever go on vacation or a long weekend with a group of friends or family and everyone brings alcohol to add to the bar? The percentage of alcohol that is actually gluten free may be small so you’re going to want to take ownership of what you added to the collection.
If you write THIS IS [insert name here]’s BOOZE! all over the bottle, people might think you’re rude. But, if you stick a little gluten-free sticker on the bottle allowing people to realize that not all of the adult beverages are safe for you, you won’t come across as unfriendly.
