“How long do spices last?”
Depends on both the type of spice and the conditions under which they are stored. Correctly dried and stored spices do not actually spoil. But over time, they will lose their potency, aroma and flavour.
As a general rule, ground spices begin to lose the potency of their aroma and flavour in about 6 months. Gently smell before using, to assess the freshness of your spices. You'll want to replace ground spices after about 1 yr. You can also store in the freezer if you can keep spices air tight. This may extend the freshness of your spices for a few months, but they are always best when kept current and used at room temperature.
Here are some tips for maximising the shelf life of your spices:
• Store in an airtight container.
• Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
• Store away from direct heat, sunlight and moisture.
• Keep lid tightly closed when not in use.
