Keep your coffee pods fresh
How to keep coffee pods fresh
Coffee pods are sealed hermetically to prevent moisture from entering the pod, as mentioned before. This means that as long as the seal is intact and the pod is not broken or slit, the coffee inside is safe for brewing and consumption. Mold and bacteria can grow in coffee grounds exposed to moisture, so it is best to discard any compromised pods.
The pods should also be stored in a cool and dry place away from humidity and direct sunlight. Even though refrigerators have controlled temperatures, storage of coffee in refrigerators is not recommended due to the presence of moisture should there be a seal failure or the pods are punctured.
During storage, it is also important for you to check the pods regularly to ensure the seals are intact and all broken pods should be discarded.
It is recommended to separate the coffee from the packaging when disposing of coffee pods and using the spent grounds in compost piles. Many manufacturers have begun making pods out of recyclable materials because of the added load on landfills and disposal systems. Remember to look for this feature when you buy your coffee pods!
Coffee pods do not go bad even after their sell-by dates. They may lose some of their flavors after the indicated dates but are not unsafe to consume. Remember to note which type of coffee pod your machine uses and to dispose of them responsibly, or use refillable pods for the freshest brews

Spaghetti with Clam Sauce
This is a simple, but delicious dish you can make at your home here at the http://www.starloftspgh.com
1 dozen littleneck clams
1 lbs of thin spaghetti
1/2 bunch of parsley
2 of garlic clove
extra-virgin olive oil
salt to taste
In a large bowl or pan, soak the clams in lightly salted water for at least 2 hours; every 30 minutes, use your hands to gently drain them without stirring up any sand that has filtered out; transfer them to a plate, change the water, which will have become cloudy, and add a pinch of salt. Be careful not to break the shells during this process.
Trim the parsley, removing only the leaves; wash and dry with a paper towel and finely chop. Crush and mince 1 garlic clove.
Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Season with salt; add spaghetti and cook, stirring occasionally, until about 2 minutes before al dente. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water.
Meanwhile, in a pan large enough to hold the clams and spaghetti, sauté the garlic with 4 Tbsp. oil for 30 seconds, then add the parsley.
After a few seconds, add the drained clams: cook them for 1-2 minutes until they start to open, then add 3 small ladlefuls of pasta cooking water.
Drain the spaghetti and transfer to the pan with the clams. Cook together for 1 minute, adding extra water pasta cooking water if needed. Cook until the pasta is al dente and a dense sauce forms due to the starch being released from the clams. Top with chopped parsley to taste and serve.
