How to Store Spices

Spices contain aromatic essential oils that emit aromas and flavors. Air, heat, and light cause aromatic oils to evaporate, which causes spices to lose their flavor. That is why it is important to keep spices in tightly covered containers in cool, dry, dark places. Store them away from moisture, dampness to avoid loss of quality. When measuring, use clean dry spoons.
