"Old spice" contest

Now here's something you don't hear about every day: Herbs and Spice and Everything Nice at Findlay Market, which celebrates its one year anniversary, wants you to check your cupboards for your oldest spice:

"Help Herbs & Spice celebrate their birthday with a contest. Here's how it works. Look in your cupboard, your mom's, or your grandma's cupboard and Bring Us Your Oldest Spice. De and Susan will do research and determine whose spice or container is the oldest. The winner will receive a $25.00 Gift Certificate to Herbs & Spice and Everything Nice. So start looking. The contest will run from now to the second Saturday in March. That's March 10th. Stop by to see some old ones that they've collected already. For more information, visit www.HerbsSpice.com or view the Herbs & Spice newsletter."

I've been too much into downsizing lately to have old spices lying around, but you might be luckier. What's in your kitchen cupboards?

I love Herbs and Spice. My husband and I stop there almost every time we visit Findlay Market. I highly recommend Debbie's Southwest Spice. It is wonderful. I was really surprised what a difference fresh spices can make to your meal.

When we moved here last spring, I actually looked closely at all my herbs and pitched quite a few. (I was horrified to see that my allspice was probably 15 years old.) So I no longer have anything mummified enough to count for the contest... Herbs & Spice is fabulous! And very economical, because you can buy a fraction of an ounce of anything -- especially helpful if it's a herb or spice you rarely use. Cardamom: ground, seeds, OR pods. Many, many kinds of chiles. Teas. You can shop for half an hour and spend only a few dollars. Just one of many reasons to do your marketing at Findlay.
