    As far back as I can remember, early 70’s, my mom had a tin of dry mustard and a tin of rosemary among other seasonings – which she aparently never used, because as other tins were replaced with new ones, these two (from the early 60’s?) never were. When I was setting up my own kitchen a few years back, I took these two tins and put them with my collection of seasonings – it just wouldn’t seem right reaching for the paprika not seeing those two tins next to the bay leaves and pepper corns!

    OMG, those things are in my kitchen right now. Substitute an ancient tin of dry mustard for the anise. The mustard inside isn’t that old, I keep replacing it as it gets used up.
