Seeking spice recommendations and planning a fall stock-up trip to Beachy's Bulk Foods

This weekend, I'm planning on taking my baking friend and guest-blogger Erin on her first trip to my favorite Amish store, Beachy's Bulk Foods, in rural Arthur. I can't wait for her to see the huge variety of colored sugars and funny shaped sprinkles.

That's part of the reason I've been thinking about fall baking already - I need to craft my list for things to buy, especially spices. I'll go through my spice drawer tonight, checking levels and freshness.

I'm also thinking about other things I want to try making this fall. For example, I'm hoping to try making a Chai tea concentrate (here's a recipe for Chai tea I blogged a few years ago), so I plan to buy nice big containers of ground ginger and fennel seeds.

I'm also hoping to buy citric acid, for DIY dishwasher cleaning.

But I'm also looking for some input - are there any unusual spices you've been unusually enamored of lately? Or any fabulous dishes you think I should stock up for making this fall and winter?

You can find just about anything at Beachy's, so bring on your recommendations.

Tell me to leave my credit card at home on Saturday or I could get in to some major trouble there.

You won't! They take only cash or check. Was meaning to remind you of that...
