First of all, what is a sugar glider? Now, about the "average" spice
cabinet. I use LOTS of herbs & spices, but for goodness sakes don't buy
them in a big bottle from the supermarket! Except for something you use
all the time, you will have a big collection of expensive stale bottles.
Pick the containers of your choice (I use little stoppered bottles) and
then buy in small quantities from a bulk bin-- either in your market or
at a health food store. And grow your own basils and parsleys in
season--nothing like them for fresh! At the end of the season I freeze
chopped basil w/ just a little water into ice cubes, then keep the cubes
in a zippie bag. MMMMM.
Let's see, some I use a lot:
Fennel seed (it adds the "Italian" to Italian seasoning)
Bay leaves (grow a pretty topiary, keep it inside all year)
Cumin (buy seed, crush as needed)
I try to buy whole when possible-- get a good mortar & pestle!
Hope this helps.
