When we add spices to recipes, we want to improve the taste of what we are making, so the fresher the spice, the better the flavour. Odds are then that the spices at the back of the cupboard or drawer are outdated and should be replaced.
Store spices in a cool dry place away from moisture, and for best quality, use the following guideline:
Whole spices - will last up to 3 years.
Ground spices - will last 1 to 2 years.
Dried herbs - will last up to 2 years.
Ground spice and dried herbs have a shorter shelf life than whole spices due to the size of their surface area. The larger the surface area, the more exposure to outside elements, such as light, air and moisture, which cause a rapid loss of aromatic compounds and flavour.
