I had gotten these spice racks as a housewarming gift and I finally got around to mounting them (i.e., glueing them to the wall). Ostmann is a rather famous German company selling spices, herbs, and the like. Googling its history, I learned that until the early 20th century, dried spices and herbs used to be sold exclusively in pharmacies and drug stores. Ostmann was apparently the first company (in Germany?) to sell these things prepackaged in grocers.

There are, of course, still a few things missing, but I can’t decide what else I use often enough. Rosemary? Sage? Thyme? MSG? Chili?
