Old Spices

Not specifically about Yonkers, but it's a lot about moving and combining households (or not moving, and the lack thereof.)

Stephanie found this great advert in the local newspaper, which explains how you would know if your spices were 15 years older or more.

I'm sad to report that more than a few of the spices that I had in my house before I moved were older than 15 years. You have to imagine that by THAT time, the $1.79 amount of spice may have gone bad, or lost most of its taste....

But that didn't stop me from moving that stuff to Yonkers! We did a big throw-out of those square tins-- had about 5 or 6 of them!

MMMMMMM.... Mustard seed.

Funny, I just called my mom last night to tell her about that ad. Am I dating myself when I say I can remember when spices only came in tins? I am big on fresh spices, but my mom has a huge number of tins in her spice cabinet. She's pulling them out now and putting them in her collectibles storage :-)

Much as I prefer fresh spice, I can't bring myself to discard ancient bottles and tins of it. I figure, heck, if I'm still spicy at 35 years, this old jar of cumin is probably okay...
