Let's start with such things as yogurt ,eggs, cheese,bread, meat, fruit and milk. These items have expiration dates on them. I try to eat them up before they expire to save money. Some people get rid of them the day they expire for fear of some kind of
parasite, mold and many other things . Other people it doesn't seem to bother them.
Spices have expiration dates too. For some reason oregano, basil, garlic powder seem to be the choice of spice in my home. Some spices seem to stay in peoples cabinets forever. I am guilty of this myself. I haven't figured out why I keep them. I know it probably
effects the taste of my food but I can't seem to bear to get rid of them. I used to make zucchini relish every year but I haven't made it at all. So Turmeric is a spice I have that I probably won't use at all. There are many other spices that I used small
amounts of that continue to get pushed back. I hope as I get to be a better cook I will find uses for all these full spices.
