Keeping Galley Spices Fresh

You may have heard this tip already from someone. If you have, I apologize for repeating it. This is something that I started doing years ago. A fellow RV-er suggested I post it on here.

Most folks keep their RV’s stocked as much as possible so that packing before a trip is kept to a minimum. For those of you like us that still work and use your RV for pleasure, this means that dry goods and food spices can get hardened from moisture very quickly when the RV is being stored. This is especially true for wet / humid climates. It gets old replacing spices that become caked during storage.

Here’s a tip: do you purchase over the counter meds or prescriptions that have the little silica pack or capsule in them? They are placed in bottles to prevent moisture from ruining the contents. These silica containers can be recycled and placed inside spice jars, sugar containers and salt & pepper shakers. They last for years (as compared to crackers), and keep the contents dry and cake free.

Give it a try...
