- Forever Honey
Ever wonder why Pooh always had a pot of honey? Aside from being a healthy sweetener, there are plenty of benefits of honey. It boosts your energy and is rich in vitamins and minerals. Most importantly, its antioxidant properties mean that honey can do shelving and goes well paired with just about anything! While you can’t carry around your own pot of it, honey twigs are an easy and effective way to kiss hunger goodbye!
- Homemade Ghee
If you’re anything like us, no dish is ever complete without homemade ghee or our special desi ghee! Whether it is parathas or breads, add a bit of this Indian ghee in place of butter for a healthier meal without the hassle of worrying about expiry!
- Instant coffee
You’re burning the midnight oil to meet a deadline the next day. You tape your eyes to your forehead but only a cup (or 10) of coffee can fix this. You walk into your kitchen to get a cup coffee but wait. Instead, you don’t have any! Never run out on coffee; whether you like your coffee hot or cold, black or mild, stack up instant coffee packets or an instant coffee mix as this essential, kitchen-must-have never goes bad!

Pure maple syrup is the best companion to any food, be it pancakes or yogurt, or any vegetable or bacon, or as just a healthier substitute to sugar! You can make maple candy or whip maple cream. Just make sure that this ingredient is always present in your kitchen, as natural maple syrup has an indefinite shelve life! Time to get creative with your recipes!
