Storing Seasoning

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by bones1948, Aug 24, 2015.

  1. Whenever I buy seasoning for my summer sausage I usually buy enough to get free shipping if possible.  When I do that I am unable to use the seasoning right away.  It stay in a box in my pantry.  After a period of time the seasoning gets harder then a rock.   Is there something I can do to keep the seasoning from getting like cement?  Is the seasoning still good?  How do you break the seasoning down so you can mix it with the meat?  

    Thanks Bones

    B1948, if you have a vacuum sealer then that would be your best bet to seal it up. If not then put through a food mincer or similar device to break it up for mixing. Air will ruin the quality of your spice after a long storage, I always add a bit more then the original recipe if the spices  are really getting old.

    I have some hard as a rock right now and I am thinking of beating it with a sledge hammer
