Although Summer may be holding on past its time, its hard to ignore the changes right around the corner. Shorter days, cooler evenings and colorful leaves mean Fall will be here in all its glory before we know it. So there’s no better time to stock your pantry with all the staples you need for this most delicious of seasons!
Fall means yummy baked goods filled with apples, pumpkin and tons of spices! Pumpkin Pie Spice and Apple Pie Spice are classic Fall spice blends to stock up on. Or try our Spice Cake Blend for a new twist on old favorites! Individual spices like Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, Allspice, and Clove Powder are also important additions to a well-stocked Fall pantry. And don’t forget baking essentials like Cocoa Powder, Dutch Cocoa Powder, Baking Powder, and Baking Soda!
Nuts, Oats & Dried Fruits
Crunchy, sweet and delicious, nuts, oats and dried fruits are important non-perishable items to include in your pantry this Fall. They make perfect additions to breads, cookies, muffins, and homemade granola bars. Check out our Cinnamon Raisin Oat Squares recipe and Seasoning Blends for Bread blog post for more inspiration!
Beans & Rice
Beans (canned or dried) and rice are must-haves for a Fall pantry! These staples make cold-weather comfort foods like soups, chilies and stews come together quick and easy. Stock up on our favorite Seasonings for Soups, as well as our new Chili Seasoning Blend and Green Chili Seasoning to make every one of your favorite soups super flavorful!
Savory whole spices like peppercorns, sesame seeds, mustard seed, and bay leaves add complexity and dimension to slow-cooked Fall favorites like roasts, soups and stews. Sweeter spices like cinnamon sticks, cloves, allspice berries, cardamom and star anise are perfect additions to spiced drinks, desserts and poached fruits, as well as many slow-cooked meats.
Seasonings For Roasts
Fall is our favorite time of the year to dust off the Crock Pot and make a delicious slow-cooked roast. Some of our favorite seasonings to have on hand for roasts include our Roast Rub, Old World Rub, Scandinavian Spice, and Santa Maria Rub. Our Italian Dressing Mix and Onion Party Dip Mix (substitute for French Onion Soup Mix) are also amazing additions to Crock Pot dinners.
No Fall pantry would be complete without high quality extracts! Whether it is classics like vanilla, almond and maple, or more adventurous flavors like cinnamon, orange or anise, extracts are a must-have for any baker’s pantry. Made from high-quality, natural ingredients, our extracts are sure to take your baking to the next level!
