When SHTF, it’s important to have enough food and water to last a couple of weeks, if not several months. But it’s also important to have some herbs and spices in your stockpile. While it wouldn’t be life-threatening to leave them out, your diet could quickly become monotonous without the addition of herbs and spices.
Eating delicious food also promotes a healthier mindset that can help see you a crisis or disaster. Plus, some herbs and spices possess medicinal properties and double as natural remedies in a pinch.
Dried herbs and spices can stay fresh for one to two years. After that, the flavors begin to deteriorate. You may still use them after that because they won’t turn completely bad. But they won’t be as flavorful as when you bought them the first time.
Just like other foods, spices are sensitive to heat, light and moisture in the air. To keep them fresh, keep spices and herbs in canning jars, airtight containers or mylar bags. Add a label with the name of the ingredient and the date you repackaged it.
Fragrant herbs and pungent spices make your foods taste better. These ingredients are invaluable when SHTF, as they allow you to still enjoy delicious and healthy meals. Start stocking up on the herbs and spices above.
