We tried a new spicerub on grilled chicken the other night. It was fantastic! So last night, using roughly the same measurements, we made a whole bunch more (using new celery seed) and put it on pork shoulder before grilling. Oh my!!! Too much celery seed! …so it’s true. Herbs and spices DO get very faded when they are old.
And speaking of old and faded, have you noticed how rotten the carrots are these days? I can’t wait til we start seeing carrots that were harvested THIS year instead of last autumn sometime.
