Full Jelly Cupboard

This is my jelly cupboard.  It's a hand me down, so it came pre-distressed.  The outside is painted a soft sage green.  

I alphabetized it all - from left to right on the 2nd shelf and then from right to left on the bottom shelf. 

Kinda Monk, I know.   But now I can find what I'm looking for.  
  • Blackberry Jelly
  • Blackberry Syrup
  • Blackberry Barbeque Sauce
  • Blueberry Lime Jam
  • Cantaloupe Lime Mint Jam
  • Cantaloupe Orange Pineapple Jam
  • Cranberry Jam
  • Elaeagnus Orange Jam
  • Peach Chutney
  • Peach Jam
  • Peach Maple Jam
  • Peach Vanilla Jam
  • Pear Ginger Jam
  • Pear Maple Jam
  • Pear-Plum Vanilla Jam
  • Pepper Ginger Jelly
  • Plum Preserves with Star Anise
  • Plum Sauce
  • Raspberry Jam
  • Rhubarb Marmalade
  • Rhubarb Ginger Marmalade
  • Rose Jelly
  • Strawberry Rhubarb
  • Violet Jelly
The little jars on the top shelf are for gifts.   Every time I make a batch of something, I put some in a few of those cute little 4 oz jars to give as gifts.  I try to put both traditional and unusual types of jam in a gift bag.   Since the jars are little, if the recipient doesn't like it, they don't have to worry about wasting a lot of it.   Plus, if I put a few different kinds of jam in a gift, I'm likely to give them at least one kind that they really like.
