What’s in Your Cupboard?

Check out ‘Carol’s Cupboard’ page for what I have in my pantry. Sauces, spices, basic everyday ingredients. Must-haves for me. What’s in your cupboard?

We are lucky to have great neighborhood markets, so shop often for fish, meat, produce. Atkins Farm market in South Amherst has great butchers, produce, specialty foods, deli. North Shore fish and seafood store in Northampton brings in fresh catches from the coastal wharves twice weekly. Frigo’s Italian market in Springfield has veal, formaggi, prepared classics.

Local farm stands and farmers’ markets are seasonal staples. Hadley “grass” asparagus, red leaf, Boston lettuces, corn, tomatoes, peppers, onions, potatoes are all native to our fertile Connecticut River Valley.
