Herb & Spice Containers That Preserve Freshness and Flavor

You may want to reconsider keeping your spices in the convenient packaging they came in

When buying dried herbs and spices, the most convenient thing to do is buy a set and keep them in their original, uniform, labeled containers. But, sometimes, convenience doesn’t translate to ideal. And while it may seem like a lot of effort to repackage already packaged goods, it’s the best way to extend the shelf life, flavor, and aroma of seasonings.

These herb and spice keepers are your best bet for keeping your spice cabinet organized, and making sure they stay fragrant for longer.
