How long has it been since you updated your spice cabinet?
Did you know that dried spices and herbs lose their freshness over time? Whole spices last longer than ground spices. When you grind whole spices, you release their oils, which shortens their shelf life.
How long do spices keep?
Whole spices have a shelf life of several years. Ground spices are best for the first year, but you may be able to stretch them longer. A simple test is to smell them. If you don’t smell much, it’s time to throw it away.
If after smelling your spice cabinet you feel like replacing or adding something, check out More Than Alive. You have a lot of options (including a good number of organic options). They also have hard-to-find foods like flaxseeds, chia seeds, and goji berries.
