Whole spices are a favourite of cooks everywhere who like to have the freshest, most vibrant flavour in their foods. Whole spices are great. They usually keep for longer than their ground counterparts, since they lose less oil to the air than ground spices. This is because ground spices have more surface area exposed to the air, so their oils evaporate more rapidly. Pre-ground spices that you will find at the grocery store may also be exposed to the light and have become stale. You should always store spices in a cool, dark place. Usually, the grocery store is rife with bright artificial lighting that actually damages the spices. If you are ready to begin your own spice grinding, the first move you should make is to buy fresh, whole spices.
