Spice Chili Seasoning Recipe

Since this seasoning can be spicy or not, it’s a fun one to alter and change. My house is split on the spice factor, as some like spicy and hot, while others prefer to keep it mellowed out and not as hot.

I love that this can be sprinkled and added to foods and soups, meaning that the entire pot of soup doesn’t have to be spicy or added if you don’t want it to be.

And it also makes a large enough batch that oyu’ll have some leftovers to use again. It’s a great way to prep and have some for later!

How do I store homemade spices?

The key to proper storage is limiting exposure to light, moisture, and heat, which can significantly reduce flavor potency.

Airtight containers made of glass or stainless steel are recommended, as they prevent oxidation and reduce the risk of flavor contamination.

Additionally, labeling and organizing your spices by type and date of creation can prevent confusion and maintain a consistent flavor profile.

With these simple yet important steps, storing homemade spices can become a convenient and rewarding way to add depth and complexity to your cooking.

How long do homemade spices stay fresh?

Freshness is key to ensuring that your dishes retain their intended flavor profile regarding homemade spices. However, the lifespan of homemade spices differs from store-bought counterparts as preservatives are not added during production.

High temperatures, humidity, and sunlight exposure can accelerate spoilage and cause the spices to go rancid. The general rule of thumb is that 6 months is a good goal to store the spices.

To determine whether your spices are still fresh, one can do a simple sensory test by smelling and tasting them.

If the aroma is weak and the flavor is dull, it’s a sign that your spices need to be replenished.

Proper storage techniques coupled with regular sensory evaluation are crucial in extending the shelf life of homemade spices.
