Buying or grinding your own spices?

Ground spices deteriorate rapidly, although some, like fenugreek, are so hard that they are almost impossible to grind at home. It is probably best to buy a selection, in small quantities, and grind them a little at a time. One advantage of buying whole spices is that you can roast them before you grind them. You can grind spice in a stone mortar and pestle, or in an electric coffee mill. If using the latter, be sure to keep it for spices and have a separate one for grinding coffee beans.
