Garlic, Cayenne pepper, Lemon pepper, Basil, Oregano, Rosemary, Thyme, Chili powder,

It's to difficult to stop at only 5. I can narrow it down to 10 though.

Why dried chives?

I much prefer fresh chives but they are rare and sub-par in the supermarket most of the time. I try and grow them with little luck.
I have access to freeze dried ones that are o.k.

Oh, it's not a preference.

It's probably too warm for them to be happy growing your area. They do well here. I wonder if it's just the hard winter they need. It gets plenty warm in summer here.

I just looked in my garden and they are just starting to come up. I tasted one, to make sure it was chives and not just some grass. What a surprise! That tiny, little piece of chive packed a punch. Much stronger chive flavour than when they get bigger. I planted a small pot's worth of chives about 10 years ago and they just keep coming back.

When we lived in the Cleveland, OH suburbs there was a stretch of county park I would drive along to and from work. Each year about this time the the spring onions would pop up in the grass area between the road and the woods. Smelled so good on the way home I wanted to stop and gather some to use in my meals!

Salt. Nothing matters if you don't have salt.

Close on the heels of salt are onions (of all varieties) and garlic.

But assuming salt is a given (and onions and garlic) ...

SPICES
Cumin
Cardamom
Ajwan (carom seed)
cloves
Fennel

HERBS
coriander/cilantro
Holy basil
Thyme
Tarragon
Rosemary

I'd like to put saffron on the list but it simply costs too much to be "reached for" very often. Which just makes it all the more special, I guess.

And no, pepper is not on my list, not even close. I almost never use black pepper.
