I wanted to take a small selection of spices with me on my car camping trips, and I wanted them to take up as little space as possible in my camp kitchen kit. Enter the Spice Wallet.
The Spice Wallet is a zippered pouch that holds six small (see dimensions below) spice tubes. The spice tubes themselves are made out of a food-grade polypropylene plastic. This material is durable, scratch resistant, and dishwasher safe. Each tube can hold roughly a heaping teaspoon of spices, enough for recipes or personal tastes that call for a sprinkling or pinch of spice. The Spice Wallet is also very lightweight, meaning that you can toss it in your pack on backpacking trips.
The spice tubes come empty and ready for you to fill with the spices of your choosing. I have separate salt and pepper shakers, so I've filled my spice tubes with cayenne pepper, onion powder, oregano, basil, red pepper, and garlic powder.
Each Spice Wallet comes with a sheet of 8 circular, semi-glossy stickers that you can write on to label the spices. These are semi-permanent labels. They can be removed, but you need to use some elbow grease to fully remove the sticker backing from the tube. I’ve found that a Sharpie Ultra Fine marker works well for writing on the labels, as does a standard BIC ballpoint pen. If you don’t want to use the supplied labels, or if you plan on switching spices often, any standard transparent tape and a permanent marker will do the job and be easier to remove.
