Organic Pantry Planning – Spices

IStock_000004970418XSmall My spice cupboard is a nightmare.  It smells divine but it's a jumble of mismatched jars, plastic bags  and cello pouches of mysterious fragrant powders.  I like to pick up herbs when I'm at local markets and fall fairs but the problem with doing that is they are never labeled in a lasting way.  While the husband is off on a boy's weekend – we organize the spice cupboard.

This week I picked up some great deals on organic spices at Liquidation World (LW) in Brantford of all places. 

Organic Herbs:  Cilantro, Oregano, Sage

Best Price:  $0.59 – .99 / 15 grams @ LW

Basic Spice Pantry

These are the basic spices and dried herbs  I like to have on hand at all times.  Regular priced organic spices and herbs usually cost about 25% more than regular spices and herbs.

  • Organic peppercorns or ground pepper
  • Coarse sea salt
  • Dried organic basil
  • Dried organic oregano
  • Ground organic cinnamon
  • Dried organic cilantro flakes
  • Organic garlic powder
  • Organic cumin
  • Organic ground nutmeg (I'm too lazy to grate it)
  • Organic bay leaves
  • Organic chili powder
  • Ground organic chilies
