Herbs and Spices - Shop and Save

❁ In bulk foods, you can buy a small amount to use while the flavor is strongest. Or try something new.

❁ Check for a “BEST by” date on packaged spices and herbs. They are still safe after the date but the flavor will be weaker.

Pork costs less than most other meats. Look for a “BEST if used by” date on the package. The leanest cuts of pork include tenderloin and loin or rib chops and roasts. Look for ground pork that is at least 85% lean.
