How To Store Properly
The key is to ensure it is airtight to keep the blend of spices fresh so you get the optimal flavor in what you bake.
How Long To Store
Store this apple spice for up to a year. Or you will look at each spice to ensure the expiration date, and then use the closest expiration date if it is less than a year out.
For example if nutmeg expires in 6 months, then you would want to toss this all out in 6 months, since that spice is the first to expire.
