Are you stocking your low carb kitchen? Be sure to keep these herbs and spices in the fridge - you'll be using them quite a bit!
Note that herbs and spices have an effective life of Six Months but are only harvested yearly. So keep them in the door of your fridge and date them, but don't bother buying them until a year later even though they'll be past their prime by then. Chances are that the stuff you see in the supermarket is from the same year as yours is!
