I need more Spices
I took a hard look at my preps last week (We are getting closer to Sept 13th) I need to continue building up the food supplies..but I really need to add more spices....
Besides pepper, salt, sugar.. what other spices should I add for the long term.. to make rice and other things less boring
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.Hidden Content Hidden Content
Five spice, curry and italian seasoning in addition to the above.
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.
Whatever you use now for seasoning. This is what I have:
Hot pepper, crushed
Chicken and Beef cubes
Coco powder (lots!)
Marsala powder (a great Asian seasoning for curry tasting dishes)
Powdered peanut butter
cyan peeper and maybe some adobo or greek nd curry oh and some dill weed.
that;s about all I would add
now my wife garlic horse radish 5 spice ginger curry and about 10 others that I can't remember and I'm not going to look.
but I do most of the cooking
and what I use the most is salt pepper dill weed and the greek stuff.
and if your just tying to flavor up some rice use chicken bullion
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.
Coriander, fennel seed, star anise, mustard seeds, smoked paprika, Hungarian sweet paprika, chipotle chili powder, ancho chili powder, Saffron, sumac powder, fenugreek, cayenne pepper, sesame seed, cardamom, caraway, Szechwan peppercorns, Aleppo chili powder. Those are some of my spices that differ from the above posts.
