Today, spices are enjoyed by most cultures across the world and many have become staples to certain cuisines. When we aren’t flavoring, coloring, and preserving food with spices, we’re using them for medicinal purposes. For instance, did you know ginger can relieve nausea, or that cumin increases immunity and metabolism? Yep, spices sure are something special. And that means we need to take the proper steps to get the most out of them and increase their shelf life…no pun intended.
Of course, spices shouldn‘t be stored too close to light and heat for long periods of time. But as Lucy said, she uses these spices quickly and has long-term storage elsewhere. Storing them over the stove like this is a great short-term solution, especially if it helps you use them more often!
Years ago, IKEA‘s super cheap (a mere $4) BEKVAM spice rack began making appearances repurposed in children‘s rooms to hold and display books. The idea caught fire and they‘ve become practically de rigueur in kids‘ rooms. But there‘s no reason this versatile little shelf should be relegated to holding spices and books.
