Hello again everyone! Any suggestions for possible uses of jars of out of date powdered herbs.e.g.cloves,majoram & fennel & caraway seeds and more, cheers, masie.



Use them with a heavy hand?

Well they wont grow so Beattie's suggestion is probably the only one.

As long as they aren't damp or gone mouldy they will just be a little less pungent. Michael Macintyre did a great joke about little used herbs on the shelf!!

just put them in your compost if they wont grow .

I think continuing to use them makes more sense than composting... they will do nothing for the compost except perhaps confuse the brandlings.
