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!

@OmSigDAVID,
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?

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. Laughing Laughing

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.
