Spice, Spice, Baby
As I was going through my coupons, I found an ad for McCormick spices that intrigued me. Yes, I know I need a job.
The ad told me my recipes deserve the freshest flavor and I couldn’t agree more. McCormick challenged me to check my spices.
This reminded me of a Thanksgiving I was hostessing when I made the best deviled eggs. R3 was chowing the eggs faster than I could make them. Once he took a breather, he said, “These are really good mom, what’s the crunchy part?” The crunchy part was dead bug infested paprika.
I accepted the spice challenge whole heartedly!
Two Ways to Check:
- Except black pepper, if you have a spice in a tin, it’s at least 15 years old.
- If your bottle has Baltimore, MD on the label it is at least 15 years old.
I had Celery Salt in a Baltimore, MD bottle that I remember buying way, way back in my Martha Stewart wanna be days.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, do you have any old crusty spices? Leave a comment on what you found!
