iVillage.com: Foods That Almost Never Expire


Shelf life: Technically, indefinitely.

How to store: Tightly sealed in a cool dark place.

Spices will technically never go bad and always be safe to consume. However quality will deteriorate as more time passes. Whole spices will stay fresh for 3 to 4 years, ground ones for 2 to 3 years and dried herbs for up to 2 years. So feel free to use that ground nutmeg in your Pumpkin Rice Pudding, but you may want to replace it after a few years for maximum flavor potency.
