Most of us have a collection of dried spices; like cinnamon, paprika, cumin, nutmeg, all spice and dried herbs; like oregano, basil, and sage sitting in containers in our kitchen.
It’s important to take stock of all those spices and herbs, so you know what you’ve got and when it’s time to toss out the old stuff. Dried spices and herbs don’t necessarily “spoil,” but they do lose their flavour over time. To keep the flavour going as long as possible, store dried spices and herbs in a cool, dry place out of direct light not over the stove, since all that heat will make them turn bland more quickly. Always, always keep the containers closed when not in use.
Time To Get Organised
One of the best ways to organise your dried spices and herbs is to ensure you can see everything you’ve got, not just the stuff you use all the time. After all, it’s a waste when a spice disappears into a corner and you forget you even have it—then you buy it all over again. Keeping yourpantry organisedwill also help you enjoy cooking more and save you tons of time. Clear containers with an airtight seal, like ourHerb & Spice Jars, will help keep your entire collection fresh, tidy and visible. The range gives you flexibility in deciding where to store the containers: in a cabinet on abamboo shelf, in a drawer, on a turntable or anywhere you have room. The tight seal helps spices maintain their flavour by keeping out air and moisture and using spice labels help you easily identify each item and aused by labelfor when it is time to chuck out the spice.
Be Careful When Cooking
It’s tempting to just dump spices into your recipe over the pot, but it can affect the quality of your spices over time. By holding your spices open over the stove, you are forcing them into the heat and the steam rising off your food may cause condensation inside of the spice containers. Our Herb & Spice Jars have a wide top to give you access with a spoon allowing you to keep the spice away from the stove before adding them to your dish keeping the moisture out.
