Old Spice [Dec. 29th, 2010|04:31 pm]
Tony Grist
We've been sorting out our kitchen. Most of our herbs and spices have gone in the bin. The oldest in the collection passed its use by date in 1996.

I think my mother still has spices left over from the 60s . . . !

I wonder if she still uses them.

She doesn't really cook, so I doubt it. Next time I am at her house, I should just throw them out!

I'm convinced there is a time portal in our cupboard. How else could outdated foodstuffs end up in there? I actually once found a tin of something that had passed its use by date!

Perhaps we have one of those too.

Keep something like that long enough and it becomes a valuable antique.

I wonder how many pre-decimal tins of lobster bisque are still in existence.

Guilty here too! When I moved house in 2004, I took everything from the spice cupboard - but I did chuck out the 1994 stuff whe I moved again in 2008

Unless you're making curries every night, spice jars tend to last a long, long time.

Yes - and they keep much longer than the date suggests - I discarded those that either no longer smelled of their nature, or that I couldn't remember last using

I have some herbs that are much older than that.

Are they still usable?

Only for incense. I would not inject them at this point.

I did a spice clear-out not so long ago. I had some sage, I think it was, dated as expiring about 10 years ago. I don't think spices go off, though. They just lose flavour.

That's it. Out of date herbs and spices aren't going to do any damage, they're just no longer fit for purpose.
