Can you freeze spices to make them last longer?

Question by Tonya F: Can you freeze spices to make them last longer?
I am single and cook often. I have a lot of spices and I know that I have had some for a really long time because I only use them for certain dishes (cream of tartar when making holiday cookies, etc.) Am I able to freeze the spices that I buy at the store and if so, how much longer do they last?

it depends on the spice. Herbs freeze better than certain ground spices. If you can buy whole spices and freeze them that way, and then grind them before you use them that is better, too. For a comprehensive guide to spices and how to care for them, go to foodtv.com. They have an entire section about spices that has been put together by chefs and cookbook authors that I find quite helpful.
