My friend thought that my mother's spice rack was impressive. And this is only the part that fit in the drawer. There are buckets of unorganized spice hidden away in other places too, we noticed when we asked for cardamon (to show our guest what spice we were talking about being an example of a weird ice cream flavor sometimes available in Sweden).
