It should be considered a pretty big sin you can eat deep fried foods nowadays. Or will it be?
Consider the menu at Long John Silvers; simply foods that are fried. Consider any menu for example, deep-fried beer battered shrimp, fried clams, french fries, fried potatoes, fried eggs. Outback restaurant delivers the Blooming Onion, that puppy is soaked in oil. Fried Fried Fried.
So perhaps no one is saying that foods that are fried are great on your behalf, but nations sure are enjoying the grease laden foods, especially Americans. Perhaps this isn't a fun time to create up the Obesity statistics. But here's the kicker, "It tastes so excellent!"

STORING DRY RUBS AND SPICE BLENDS
Nature provides spices when using the cell structures important to maintain their flavor and aroma for extended periods after harvest. Whole spices, dried and stored, were seen to keep for many years and so deliver potent flavor when ground. Listed below are some basic rules on storing and handling spices to help protect the flavor of the purchase:
Bear them From the STOVE AND OVEN, And do not LET THEM GET WET
Without doubt, they need to be kept cool and dry ..... never store spices or dry rubs near the kitchen stove or other supply of high heat. Also, never store the dry rubs in a very place when the containers are apt to get wet or leave the package open if the humidity gets high. Caroline's Rub spice creations are packaged inside a foil, light impermeable pouch which helps to hold the freshness within your dry rub purchase. However, you could guarantee the fresh quality lasts by keeping your spices and dry rubs somewhere cool and dry. Cool means no higher that 68 F (20 C) and dry isn't more than 60% relative humidity. Storing your dry rubs and spices in the kitchen cupboard is often better than storing them on the spice rack mounted to your wall.
