Quick tip: How to store spices?

We all know that spices are one of the most important ingredients for every dish, from simple to complicated recipe. With just a little amount, they can bring your dishes to a whole new level, create delicate and sometimes, intense flavors that you may notice in the first bite/spoon. Do we know how to use spices efficiently? Yes, I think for the people who love cooking, this is a basic thing. Do we know how to store them correctly to keep their flavor? Mmmmm, not really, I did it wrong 😦 So hopefully this tip will be useful and helpful for us, and of course, for our spices!

According to chef Rick Tramonto from Tramonto’s Steak and Seafood, we should “store spices in a cool, dark place, not above your stove. Humidity, light and heat will cause herbs and spices to lose their flavor.”

Did you know this tip before? Do you find it helpful?

    Good information! I don’t store my spices near the oven. But I didn’t know it was the right thing to do at the time. Thank you!
