The best spices and herbs for your survival food supply

If you have a home garden, you can also grow fresh herbs like basil, chives, mint, parsley, rosemary, sage and thyme.

Note that space and money are both limiting factors when building a survival food supply. Before you buy items for your stockpile, make sure you know how to use them for various dishes.

Here are some of the best herbs and spices for your stockpile:

Chili powder and cumin

You can use chili powder and cumin for many bean recipes.

On its own, chili powder is great if you want to give your favorite savory dishes a spicy kick.


Add a bit of cinnamon to give a delicious flavor boost to plain rolled oats or baked bread.

Cinnamon can also be used to make different beverages, like cinnamon hot chocolate, a cinnamon latte, a peanut butter cinnamon smoothie, or a turmeric cinnamon tea. (Related: HRS solutions: Must-have survival drinks for your pantry.)

Lemon pepper

Chard is a leafy green that can provide some missing nutrients when cooking with dry basics. One way to use Swiss chard is to sprinkle a bit of lemon pepper.


Many savory dishes use onions as a main ingredient.


Black pepper, cayenne pepper, crushed red pepper, or white pepper should be included in your food stockpile.


Even plain salt can make almost any dish taste better.


Turmeric is a staple in Indian curries, but it is also a great addition to many dishes and even some beverages.

Turmeric’s earthy, warm and peppery flavor pairs best with roasted vegetables like cauliflower, potatoes and your preferred root vegetables. It is also a great addition to vegetable or chicken soup.
