Landscape (UK) - - In the Kitchen -

Left­over mack­erel tins can be put to good use as salt and pep­per hold­ers once their con­tents have been en­joyed. First, the la­bel is stripped from the tin, which is thor­oughly washed, tak­ing care around sharp edges. To en­sure they are com­pletely fresh and free of residue, it may be nec­es­sary to leave the tins to soak overnight. Strips of pa­per in nau­ti­cal colours are mea­sured and cut to fit the cir­cum­fer­ence of each tin. Af­ter the tins are thor­oughly dry, the pa­per is glued in place. Salt and pep­per are ground us­ing a pes­tle and mor­tar and poured into the tins, ready to serve. The pa­per is eas­ily re­placed, should it be­come marked in any way.
