  <<< Of course, when in doubt, drop back and punt ;-) How did they  
deal with this in period? I'm thinking that spices were ground to each
usage, rather than stored as a powder for any length of time. >>>

I'm sorry if this is now beating a dead horse, as there have been  
many replies here about modern spice storage, but this file in the  
PLANTS, HERBS AND SPICES section of the Florilegium has some  
information on how spices were packaged and transported in period, as  
well as a bunch of commentary on modern spice storage techniques.
