I have two sections for spices in the pantry. The items that I use most, and the other crap.
The spices I use most are ground mustard, black pepper, red pepper, cumin, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and brown sugar. These are the items I use for my BBQ sauces, rubs, and slaw dressings.
The liquids I need are worcestershire sauce, cider vinegar, soy sauce, catsup, and mustard.
Why do you need to know this? Because I was just gathering my implements of destruction to make a slaw dressing and I was looking at all the useless spices that I have lying around. And that is probably the incorrect usage of “lying” but what the heck, you know?
Where the heck did I get all of these items? Thyme? Don’t know when the last TIME was that I used thyme. Get it? Get it?
Basil? Hell I don’t use basil. Bay leaf? Don’t even use that when I cook fish. Nutmeg? Nah. Italian seasoning? What the heck is Italian seasoning other than a combo of some of the things that I already have.
What are the spices you use the most in your cooking? What do you have lying/laying around that never get used?
