Fall is here and the leaves are turning to beautiful shades of red, orange, yellow and brown—just like the spices used in so many comfort foods we cook and bake this season and throughout the holidays. To find those high-quality spices, rubs, seasoning and gravy mixes that flavor your favorite recipes, look no further than your local Strack & Van Til Food Market.

Chilly? Put on a pot of chili or a tureen of soup to warm up. Strack & Van Til carries red cayenne pepper and chili powder for your Chili Fest and dried vegetables, chopped onion, minced garlic and bay leaves to season your soups.

You’ll find a wide variety of spices, seasonings and rubs all year long, with special items for holiday dinners and baking.

Cooking up the perfect Thanksgiving turkey is a snap with poultry seasoning, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. If you prefer to brine your bird, select from turkey or maple apple turkey brine varieties, and don’t forget the gravy, available in turkey, brown and chicken flavored mixes.

Baking those traditional autumn and Thanksgiving desserts? Shop Strack & Van Til’s shelves for apple pie spice, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.

To amp up the flavor of your holiday roast, try Steakhouse Prime Rib Seasoning, New England Garlic Pepper Rub and Rustic Rosemary and Garlic Rub.

When the holiday baking begins, shop Strack & Van Til for dark chocolate cinnamon sugar, candy cane dust, cinnamon red hots, S’mores crunch and red and green sanding sugar. There are also sprinkles of all kinds to decorate your holiday cookies.

They say that variety is the spice of life, and Strack & Van Til’s variety of spices is second to none. Bottled by Nutmeg Spice, an independent, family-owned company, Strack & Van Til brand spices are freshly stocked year-round at your local store.
