A few weks ago the wife was asking what I wanted for Christmas, so I told her that I would like some Paprika...not the little bottles you find at the store, more like the big 1# containers.

So, here comes Christmas morning, and I open up this huge box, HOLY ATOMIC BUFFALO TURDS!!!! 25 pounds of paprika!!!!

Looks like Im all set for making some huge quantities of rub.

Any tips on storage? I know I need to keep it airtight, but will it save better if I freeze it?
Dont freeze spices,it will dry out the oils contained in the spice and compromise the flavor.
I think it originally came in a big bucket, but the wife measured it all out and put it in individual ziplock baggies. I dont have one of those Foodsaver vac systems, maybe I need to invest in one.

Thanks for the tip on NOT freezing, I didnt know that. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
