How long are herbs and spices good for?
I have a lot of herbs and spices that I recieved as a wedding gift two years ago. Im just now figuring out this whole cooking thing and I want to know if I should use these or buy new?
edit: Yes its been two years lol. I cook, I just havent been making anything interesting or different. Mainly chicken, spaghetti, pork chops, tacos, that sort of thing :)

I have always heard one year. That gets pretty expensive. Unless you are cooking for some people with amazingly discriminating palates, just add more than what the recipe says. They never go “bad,” just more tasteless.
By the way, to increase shelf time, dark=good and freezing=good.

opened, unopened? they are good as long as they smell and taste as they should and no little critters are crawling around in them.
