Mix Ingredients: Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl.
Storage: Store in an airtight container or jar for up to 4 years.
Your spice blend will last up to 4 years if properly stored. Now, the blend will never go “bad” or “foul” since there is no moisture present. It will simply lose potency and flavor. I find it makes my life easier to mark my blends with a date to keep better track of them. To see if your blend is still good, a classic sniff test will do the trick.
Store your blend in an airtight container, ideally a jar with a screw-top lid. It will do best in a dark, cool environment such as your pantry or a drawer.
If you’ve just washed the jar you plan on storing your blend in, make sure it’s completely dry before using it. I like to dry my jar well with a towel, then let it dry for a good 20-30 minutes upside-down on a drying rack. A damp jar can potentially spoil your spice blend as you’ll end up sealing the moisture inside with no way to dry out.
