not exactly spices, but i have some Frankincense and Myrrh that was given to my mother by some wise guys the day i was born
. . . and, what might have been the date of that event?
The day before she swapped the gold for all those shoes.
Oldest spice jar is something covered in grime and unknown dusts,
I think it's nutmeg but I may be wrong as half the label came off a while ago. Holding onto it so I can get it appraised someday on Antiques Roadshow.
U don t take appropriate care of your senior spice jars!
Well I haven't evicted it or sent it to the rest bin for old spices yet. How much more can I be expected to do for it seeing as how it's never given me any mealtime help?
It shud have a protective shield
against grime and unknown dusts.
Hey, I ain't made of money! If it wants those things it needs to head out and get a job!
I have many spices that are about 45 years old. They're not on a wrack. They're in a cabinet. That's where I keep the spices and herbs that don't fit on the wrack.
I've got room. Why should I throw them out. The minute they're gone, I'll need one. We all know that.
Hold on to them!! They are now classic antiques ....along with my nutmeg.
Funniest thing I've heard in a while...Chuckles!!
Welcome to a2k, davidlane.
I still have some real saffron, now can't remember why I've not used it, except that it's in the bottom third of roll away cart and I forget about it. It's probably Poor Old Saffron by now.
You have re-started a moderately old thread, for which I'm very glad. I'm going to save it on my desk top, as I liked a bunch of ideas on it and want to add them to my recipe files.
Meantime, I dearly miss Lordyaswas and JoeNation posting.
