  • Check out how old those spices in your spice rack actually are. While I don’t buy the “discard after six months” mantra, I think those that are 15+ years old should probably go.

    While cleaning out my mother’s cabinets in 1996 (or so) I found a collection of very old spices. Most were from the last ten years or so, but there were a couple from 1979.

    I can’t speak for how good they were; I don’t think they’d been used for years. But we HAD moved with them three times.

    Then again, if you keep them long enough, the jars and packages become valuable antiques!I’m glad my mom was not big on throwing her old spices away. Ha ha.
