Action Steps for Stocking Your PD Spice Cupboard
- For Efficiency:
- Keep spices you use regularly within arm’s reach of your prep station.
- Keep spices that are used in combination (pickling spices, Curry flavors, etc.) together in the cupboard.
- Keep a back stock of commonly used spices so you never run out in the middle of a recipe.
- Recycle empty spice jars (8oz. or more) and refill from your bulk bags. Make your own label or use dissolvable labels.
- Remove the inner shaker top on the spices you measure with measuring spoons.
- Spices are used in multiple PD Recipes. If a new one is introduced, it will be used in many future recipes.
- Arrange your cabinet in sections: Basic Spices, Committed Extended Spices, Baking, Vinegars, etc.)
- Search any of these items in the green recipe search box to see the recipes that use it.
- For Savings:
- Buy spices in bulk for the best price and quality.
- Spices are used generously in PD Recipes for flavor, protection, authenticity and to boost bioavailability.
- Spices should be bright in color and fragrant. Grocery store spices are often old.
- Look in the ethnic section of the grocery store for hanging bags of spices for less.
- Start with the basic spices and add on as you find PD Recipes you like or want to try.
