It’s that time of year again, bakers…

…to refresh your spices. Which is a more civilized way of saying: pitch out your old ones and buy new! I’m betting those ground cloves haven’t seen the light of day since last December. If you’ve got whole nutmeg hanging around, that’s OK, it’ll last three years. But the ground stuff isn’t reliable after three months. So put’em on this weeks’ shopping list: ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground allspice and ground cloves. Cardamom too (if you’re Scandinavian). That’ll keep your Thanksgiving pies and Christmas cookies tasting their best. I won’t bust your chops about savory spices, but ya know, that ground poultry seasoning of yours has definitely seen better days.
