The Essential Spice Cabinet
For the most part, spices have a long shelf life, so there's no risk in overbuying - and not having that essential seasoning that makes or breaks a dish can be a culinary nightmare! Always check your spice cabinet to see what you're running low on, so you can be prepared. Although spices are non perishable, they do tend to lose their potency, so always make sure you're assessing what you have on hand. Some canned ingredients and jarred ingredients can last years, if properly stored. It's a good idea to check expiration dates once in a while, as pantry items can be forgotten in the back of a cupboard. Condiments like mustard, compotes, spreads and tapenades can be stored for years unopened.
When buying condiments and spices, make sure you stock on ingredients that deliver big on flavor, like tomato paste for example, which gives depth to a bevy of sauces, broths, and soups. More expensive spices like saffron for example, you want to buy in small quantities or when you need them, while other more common baking spices like cinnamon, flaky Maldon salt or vanilla extract you want to have on hand at any time - they'll help you whip up delicious cookies, cakes and breads instantly!
