    I keep a ridiculous supply of spices, herbs, and blends on hand, and I take excellent care of them: they live well-sealed in the freezer when not in use, and if they don't smell pungent to me anymore, I toss them. I tend to buy my spices from Penzey's, though my collection comes from a range of sources - travel/spice markets, departing friends who gave me their stuff, ordinary grocery stores, etc.

    I'm actually taking some of it back to Hawaii with me (it would cost hundreds of dollars to start fresh and buy everything I like to keep on hand), but that still leaves an amazing amount of stuff. My staff would be clueless regarding what to do with most of it, and I hate to just throw it out, so I'm giving it all away. PM me to arrange a time to pick up any or all of it. Here's a list of what I've got (okay, kava isn't a flavoring - but I store it with my spices and I'm giving it away too):

    Truer words were never spoken. Now that all the spices are thawed, it smells like an Indian grocery in my house. It's a bit overpowering, actually. Somebody help!
