Good-quality herbs will stay fresh for about a year or so when stored properly. Good-quality ground spices will keep for about 6-12 months. Whole spices will keep much longer when stored carefully. In general, the warmer the climate, the shorter the shelf life.

Here are some general rules of thumb:

  • Ground spices: 6-12 months
  • Whole spices: 1-3 years
  • Green leafy herbs: 1-3 years
  • Seeds: 3-4 years
  • Seasoning blends: 1-2 years
