Pantry 2020 Basics

Check out these basics for our 2020 pantry. (You can also download this list as a handy PDF and save it on your phone!) When you're stocking your pantry, take note of storage and best-before dates. Nuts and certain whole grains are higher in fat and are best stored at 50 to 70 F (10 to 20 C) in a clean, dark cupboard. For longer storage, refrigerate or freeze.
