How Long Does Curry Powder Last?

 Does curry powder ever spoil?

 Curry powder – an evil thing, as we have been taught – has a very short shelf-life.

Because it is a combination of very aromatic spices, already ground, it loses its pungency in as little as 2 months. In traditional Indian households, spices (never curry powder) are ground as they are needed, so they are always fresh and flavorful.

We get so many questions from people wanting to "tone down" their spicy curries and other Indian dishes, perhaps you could send them your less flavorful, aging spices, and we'd solve two problems at once?
