Toss Out Stale Spices
When was the last time you took a peek – and we mean really looked at – the herbs and spices in your cabinet? Herbs and spices don’t spoil like fresh food. But they do lose their flavour and potency after a period of time. To ensure your herbs and spices are making a flavourful impact on your favorite dishes:
- Aroma should be strong
- Taste should be potent
- Colour should be vibrant
If your spice or herb doesn't meet these freshness standards, check the expiration date on the bottle. It may be time to toss and replace. You'll notice a powerful flavour difference in your dishes instantly!
