Spice Smell Test

Spice Smell Test


Ground spices die quickly. So give them a whiff—if they don’t smell like anything, they won’t taste like anything.

And if they don’t taste like anything, you’re cooking with a flavorless, brown powder.

Toss most of your spices—especially that ground cumin.

It's a great idea to keep a small herbs and spice note journal.
