What's in My Corn Free Pantry

Pure spices are fine to have on hand and use. Avoid items such as "Seasoned Salt." They are not that pure, and probably contain ingredients such as MSG that you'd want to avoid anyway. We buy whatever brand is available, such as McCormick and Tone. I regularly use:

  • Allspice
  • Basil
  • Bay leaves
  • Celery seed
  • Cloves, whole and ground
  • Cinnamon
  • Dill Seed
  • Garlic, real, powdered and minced
  • Ginger
  • Mustard seed
  • Corn AllergensNutmeg
