If you are stocking your spice rack for the first time, or are wanting to purchase the most common herbs and spices called for in recipes, here is a list of staples you should own.
- bay leaves
- cayenne pepper
- crushed red pepper flakes
- garlic powder
Of course, you may be a fan of a recipe that calls for celery seed or ground cloves, so don’t not pick up a certain herb or spice simply because it isn’t on the list. But this will serve as a great jumping off point for you to stock that spice rack.
