Foiled again

Seen on a pot of dried coriander leaf¹ :

New – Foil Fresh Seal

That's a glass jar with a plastic lid, sold within an anti-tamper plastic sleeve. Is an additional piece of metallised plastic really going to make a significant difference?

Sorry; one isn't supposed to think about marketing claims² .

1: I know; fresh is nicer, but the minimum quantity sold is more than I can realistically use before it goes off. Hmm. Maybe that needs some foil....

2: Of course, one could think too hard, and convince oneself that the pot contains a free marine mammal, pre-wrapped ready for cooking. But that'd be foolish. I mean, it's only a small pot.


I think you can freeze most herbs flat, in a plastic bag, so that they can be crumbled into things later.

I've taken to getting all my herbs and spices from Single Step, as you can help yourself to as much or as little as you like, from large jars, and take them home in little paper bags. There's only so many uses for small, glass jars.
