Shelf-life Of Spices
- 10 Months ago
The taste of your cooked dishes depends heavily on the freshness and quality of spices used in them. Ever wondered how long you can store spices in your kitchen?
If you buy ready-to-use spice mixes, the label on the packet will give the shelf-life of the mix. But if you make your masala at home, you need to be sure that the spices have not lost their potency. Generally, most dry spices like jeera, methi, mustard, cardamum, bayleaf, haldi, pepper, etc, last for about a year. Whole spices keep longer than ground spices. Fresh spices like green chillies, ginger, garlic last only for a few days.
