Cumin and cayenne are staples in my pantry. I go through both like crazy and buy bottles at least every other week. Given that, I’ve NEVER been to the store and had them be out of cumin or cayenne in at least some form.
With the coming Snowpocalypse, I went grocery shopping last night. No cumin and no cayenne, not even in the Indian and Latin American sections of the store where they have bulk spices. I went to three different stores before snatching up little half-size bottle of cumin at Target (no cayenne to be found).
What the hell is everyone cooking for the storm that requires them to buy all the cumin and cayenne?
