Spice is a substance that can be smelled or tasted by the sense of smell. It may be a single substance or a mixture. According to the preparation method or raw materials, spices can be divided into natural spices and synthetic spices. In two broad categories, spices need to be stored in spice storage tanks. There are many problems in the actual working process of the existing spice storage tank. For example, when spices are stored, they are prone to mildew due to humidity, which to a certain extent results in the destruction and waste of spices. So spice jar storage becomes a big problem. So, how to store spice jars?
"The main reason for the deterioration of spices is the exposure to moisture and ultraviolet rays. It is best to divide the amount that is usually used into small packages, and put them together with the desiccant in a highly light-shielding and airtight storage tank (iron can with lid, etc.) ) and keep it at room temperature. Many people think that they can be stored in the refrigerator for longer than at room temperature, but they are wrong. Especially in summer, every time you take it out of the refrigerator, the inside of the container Condensation will occur immediately, but it will cause the spices to absorb moisture and cause deterioration. Except for the very few spices such as vanilla pods that must be refrigerated, please do not store spices in the refrigerator.”
Therefore, the following points should be paid attention to when storing spice jars
1. It is best to store it away from light, preferably in a cool place. Long-term sun exposure will quickly dissipate the flavor of the spice, lose its color, and fail to serve as a seasoning.
2. If you prefer to buy spices in bulk, put the parts you want to use into a small bottle, and store the rest in separate resealable bags (remember to keep their original packaging). Squeeze out as much air as possible and place in an airtight box.
3. Dried chili peppers and chili powder are best kept in the refrigerator to prolong their flavor and freshness.
4. The spices must be kept dry, do not scoop with a wet spoon. Keep the spice bottle away from where the steam should be dry.
5. Dried herbs are more intensely scented than fresh. If a recipe calls for fresh and you only have dry, a general rule of thumb is to use one-third the amount that the recipe calls for.
