King Arthur makes a self rising flour.  You can find it in many USA grocery stores or on line at KAF.

Okay, folks, what can you add as a necessary vinegar that's not been mentioned. My Surig is a German/Scandinavian vinegar more acidic than any domestic version -- it's the only obscure vinegar in my pantry.

I bought a red wine tarragon vinegar on a whim and now I'm on the lookout for it again because it was so delicious I finished it quickly. Always considered myself a vinegar lover but I'm put to shame by some of your collections!

I always have a "beef" with a number of the "Store cupboard ingredients" - not necessarily because they are common in a large number of homes in all parts of the world, but because I feel they may be essential to a recipe and I would like to know they are needed when I am researching a recipe.  Ones that come immediately to mind are: garlic (I love garlic in recipes and many recipes only require 1 or 2, but that is still significant); lemons, red wine and white wine.  Was please to note that eggs were removed the SCI list - (for which I heaved a sigh of relief).

Another puzzle is why more specific ingredients is classified as SCIs while the less-defined ones are not.  e.g.

red wine and white wine are SCIs, "wine" is not. 

And caster/castor sugar is not an SCI where it seems to me it should be. 

And oil is not but olive/vegetable/canola oils are.

Dijon mustard is an SCI but oher mixed mustards (mild, hot) are not.  It's not a mustard that was ever included in my parents' pantry but I use it reasonably frequently.
