Herbs and spices can be both dried and fresh. When stocking up your spice shelf/cabinet/pantry/vault (I don't judge), there are some classic dried varieties that I always keep on hand because of how versatile they are. Warming classics like cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger are very popular in the fall and winter, while others like oregano are easily used year-round. In the fridge, there are also some fresh herbs and flavoring ingredients that you should keep on hand for quickly adding flavor to meals. So what should you buy fresh, what should you buy dry, and what should you maybe skip getting until you need it? Let's find out.
