Why We Stock Up With Fall Staples

As autumn approaches, and the sweaters come out… I want to pull out every pot in my kitchen and create warm and inviting food, fresh from the fall harvest.

Sometimes those recipes are easy, memorized from years of combining the same ingredients during the same months, year after year.

While recipe techniques change, and ingredient combinations differ, the essence of fall food is the same.

It’s warm, cozy, and oh-so-delicious.

The Beauty of Fall

Stocking up with fall pantry staples contributes to the beauty of autumn. An ever-changing season amalgamation. Much like a worn hand-knit sweater sporting new wood buttons.

The nature of the season is a blending of familiar favorites and new inspirations. Put another way, fall should be warm and familiar with comfortable surprises. Burning the home fires and nurturing the soul.

And so I stock my fall pantry; with the familiar, mostly, yet always experimenting with new ingredients, techniques, and recipes.

Stocking the fall pantry allows spontaneous experimenting whenever the urge for, say, pumpkin anything strikes!

Fall Pantry Staples Stock Up List

When a quick trip to the market is the last thing on your mind, having a pantry brimming with seasonal offerings is essential.

Having a well-stocked pantry removes the stress of meal planning and allows cooking to become quicker and more pleasurable, says Dean & Delucca, manufacturers of fine spices.

While I maintain stock on year-round items (tomatoes, tomato sauce, cereals, peanut butter, and so on) these are the items I’m particular about stocking (or re-stocking) in my fall pantry.

Of course, don’t forget to add your favorite flavors of fall.
