How to keep spices fresh? and how often should they be replaced to maintain freshness?

— Rebecca Go


So we talked about that before so keep them cool. You can keep them in the freezer. If you'd really like to I think that's a little bit overboard. I would rather just use them copiously you can buy spices in those tiny little jars so you don't have so much to store really or as I've said earlier in this broadcast today. Just use them up. And once you buy it just just plow through it find other ways to use it introduce spices into all of your other dishes whether it's your roasted chicken your roasted broccoli cauliflower steaks. Whatever it is, you're raw beet salad with walnuts and hey all spice pepper and fennel seeds would go really well in there. Also, maybe with some cracked core away. Just figure it out. You know what you're not really gonna go wrong. So to me best thing to do is just to keep eating your spices rather than have to make try and maintain them for long periods of time, but you do want to keep them away from Air contact. So airtight Lids jars keep them sealed keep them away from light. So as I mentioned earlier do as I say not as I actually do because in my kitchen, And just use things often enough that I'm not worried about the quality and I'm also buying initial quality at such. I'm buying at such great initial quality that I have a very long way to fall as opposed to random Supermarket product. That wasn't great quality to begin with when it went into the jar and then might have been sitting there for two years Etc. You have less way to fall off the quality Cliff there than you browse the fresh stuff.
