Hi Cynthia, I have an electric coffee grinder which I no longer am using for coffee (because I'm not drinking coffee now). Do you happen to know if it's reasonable to think I can clean it to use for grinding spices? Any suggestions how? Thanks! I love your idea of making the curry paste as a Christmas gift. Hope you're well. Margaret

Yes Margaret. That's exactly what I use for grinding spice. Out that old coffee grinder to good use!

Would this freeze? Or would it lose potency? Thanks!!!

Sophia, I haven't frozen it before but I think it would do just fine. I am using some right now that has kept fine in the frig since last Christmas!

Thanks for all your excellent advice! I just made this curry paste and it is fabulous! So flavorful and versatile! And ingredients only came to a few dollars! Yum and wow. Cynthia, you are an absolute inspiration!

I found this site off the AB list and I am so glad I did. I love curry but I almost never make it because I could never make it fresh, with this recipe now I can and it'll be healthy too!

Love your recipes and site! In respect to giving this curry paste as a Christmas gift...can I can it? I am in Oregon with family in Virginia and would like to mail them a jar. Is this something I could toss in a water bath for 5-10 min and call good? Thanks for all you do Cynthia!

How would you know if the curry paste has been hanging around too long?
