Fall is here, which means crisper weather, changing leaves, and cozy flannels and sweaters galore. As the temperatures drop and pumpkin mania begins, prepare your kitchen for the season of celebrating roasted vegetables, spice and fruit-based muffins, slow cooker stews, and sweet potatoes for every meal. It's time to welcome fall with open arms—and a clean kitchen.
The first step to getting ready for fall is prepping your kitchen. It's a good habit to clean out your pantry and kitchen at the beginning of each season. We aren't saying you should throw everything away, but it's smart to reorganize and take inventory of what you have - you don't want to be caught making an apple pie to realize you are all out of cinnamon. Here are fall pantry staples we know you will be using the entire season.
