Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Kitchen Quick Tips - Trust Your Nose

kitchen quick tips

When you open your spices, waft (wave hand over container towards your nose).  If you can immediately identify the smell of the spice it is still good to use.  If the scent is not immediate, it is time to replace the spice.

I bet pretty much all of the few spices I use need replacing.
Thanks for this!
