SPRINGING INTO SUMMER

Steenbergs recently held a competition to

find the oldest spice in their customer's

cupboards was both entertaining and

revelatory. Steenbergs began 11 years

ago, but in terms of oldest spices even

the first ones sent out in 2004 would

have been mere babies compared to the

competition winners.

There was no particular spice that was

sitting in everyone's cupboard unloved,

jars and packets filled with everything

from dill seed, coriander, rosemary,

cloves, pickling spice and garam masala:

some of which hadn't even been opened,

although they were over 30 years old. The

overall winner was a jar of Garam Masala

from 1984, although the actual oldest was

the ultimate in store cupboard neglect -

Pickling Spices from 1975, costing 19p!

According to the findings a while host

of people had cupboards full of spices

which they'd bought prior to 'best before'

dates came into being. 'Best before'

dates are just for guidance, as opposed

to the 'use by' dates but spices do lose

their essential oils once they are milled,

so ground spices and blends of these will

lose their smell and flavour much more

quickly than whole spices. Steenbergs

recommends an optimal shelf life of no

more than 2-3 years so that the delicate

flavours don't have time to fade.
