Always store your herbs and spices away from heat and moisture in an airtight container. This will prevent moisture from collecting in the herbs and causing mold and mildew which can harm your family. It will also ensure they stay fresh and that they do not overdry if in extreme heat. The heat and direct sun can also cause bleaching of the herbs. You want your herbs to be fresh in taste and sight so you can create the best dish possible. So move that spice cabinet to the other side of the kitchen.
