Dry Mustard Shelf Life

  • 2

I have a tin of dry mustard ... probably at least 3 yrs. old, that is rarely used. I need about two teaspoons for my turkey breast and wonder if it is too old. Does it lose it's flavor like wet mustard?

  1. Not noticied any problem. The tin we currently have has a "best before" date of 2009 and it still seems fine.

    1. The best way to tell is to taste it. So many factors can impact how long a spice is good for, not just the age of item.

      If you can’t bear to taste the dried mustard by itself you can mix w/ a little mayo and dip a pretzel in it or put on sandwich. With
