Answer the question about "last herb/spice you bought", brought to mind a lot of questions I have about herbs and spices or seasonings. During the holidays I bought Whole Nutmeg 1.6 oz for a WHOOPING $12+, OUCH! • How long does whole nutmeg last sealed in a jar? • In fact does anyone have a good link for storage on dried seasonings and fresh herb, plus best storage methods? • We have a Winco close by that has seasonings, spices in bulk, which is better to buy small quantities from Winco or have seasoning in sealed containers on my self for several years at a time? • I usually grind pepper for fresh ground pepper in recipes. But my little hand grinder broke, so I use my little electric to grind pepper, and have been grinding enough for 2 or 3 days. What do you think is grind fresh much more superior to ground 2 or 3 days? • If you were to stock 10 spices in bulk use container like Costo or Sams sells which are about a quart size, which would you choose. I ask because I do a lot of bbq and smoking and prepare/mix all my rubs rather than buy individual rubs, with a couple of exceptions. My current bulk spices: Cumin, Chili Powder, Paparika, Granulated Garlic, Pepper Corns, Lemon Pepper, Red Chili Flakes, Montreal Steak Seasoning, Montreal Chicken Seasoning, Chopped Onion, Kosher Salt.
