    Wife keeps a full spice rack. Other than salt and sugar the only spice I keep any real quantity of is slap ya momma (a really good spicy cajun seasoning mix) and cayenne pepper. I like it hot.

    Even though it's not a spice I also recommend keeping a bunch of raw honey if you can get it. It's super healthy and lasts forever. Great for sweetening things and also has medical uses. Plus you can use it to make mead if you wanted to.

    Cinnamon would be first on my list, . . . chili powder, . . . sage, . . . cumin, . . . ginger, . . . celery seed, . . . baking powder, . . . baking soda, . . . yeast, . . . horseradish, . . . vanilla, . . . nutmeg, . . . oregano, . . . parsley, . . . peppermint, . . . rosemary, . . . garlic, . . . thyme, . . . turmeric, . . . allspice, . . . nutmeg, . . . paprika, . . . and you may want a couple bottles of beef and chicken bullion cubes.

    Then you want to add cocoa, . . . Hershey's chocolate, . . . raisins, . . . dates, . . . figs, . . . some confectioners sugar, . . . brown sugar, . . . powdered eggs, . . . and don't forget the hot sauce, . . . several bottles.

    This is my basic list, . . . there are a whole boat load more.

    If you have a Big Lots store near you, . . . they have a huge shelf of $1 a bottle, spices. Go get one of each.

    May God bless,

    If you can breathe, . . . thank God.

    If you can read, . . . thank a teacher.

    If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a veteran.

    I just keep one extra of the stuff I use regularly, since spices don't have a great shelf life. My best plan is my perennial herb garden. Mints of various description, oregano, lemon balm, rosemary, sage, chives all self-propagate year after year with just a little attention to make sure the space-grabbers don't crowd out the more shy types.

    Be sure to have the basic staples like oil, vinegar, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, honey, grains and/or flours.
    I have a couple of 50 pound blocks of salt as emergency reserve/barter. ($7 in a feed store.) the blocks are compact and durable. Throughout history, salt has been a very desirable barter item. Battles have been fought over the control of salt beds. I imagine the same will be true in the future.
