DRIED HERBS Oregano, thyme, sage, rosemary, and tarragon are decent substitutes for fresh. ) They keep for about 6 months. SOY SAUCE A must. Make sure it contains soy and wheat as primary ingredients and doesn’t include caramel color or artificial flavorings. Keeps indefinitely. FLOUR, CORNMEAL, BAKING POWDER, AND BAKING SODA Especially if you want to bake. Flour and cornmeal go bad after 3 months or so; store in the freezer for longer keeping. ) SUGAR, HONEY, AND MAPLE SYRUP Essential for desserts and occasionally good in savory dishes too.

Other ingredients, like fresh vegetables, can really be frozen only if they’re cooked first—so why not eat them right away? How long can you keep something in the freezer? Up to a year, I always say, though it won’t be nearly as good as if you ate it within a month. Ditto pantry foods. So why wait? In short, eat what you buy as soon as possible. All the Tools You Need Granted, stocking your kitchen with equipment takes more time and money than buying food for the pantry and fridge.

Get in the habit of trying a bite of what you’re cooking after every addition of salt or other seasoning to see if you want more.
