WIP How to buy and keep spices
Storing Herbs and Spices
Air, light, moisture and heat are not friends to your herbs, spices, olive oils, or vinegars. To help preserve their quality:
• Store in a tightly covered container. • Store in a dark place away from sunlight. • Store away from moisture and work to prevent while cooking. • Avoid storing near a dishwasher, oven, stove, sink, or any other heat or moisture source. • Don't add directly from container into a steaming pot to prevent steam moisture from entering the container. • DO store inside a dark and cool cupboard or drawer.
