Ground mustard

how long should dry ground mustard keep its flavor?
I bought the Publix brand about a year ago, keep it on a dark pantry with the lid tight. the expiration date is March 2012.
I used it today & it seemed to have no flavor. I kept adding more & still not much flavor.

    Dry spices loose their strength rapidly, with the exception of things like whole peppercorns, whole nutmeg,  etc.
    Does your store have a bulk foods section? Most sell spices.
    Also, a lot of health food stores carry a good selection of bulk spices.
    I keep a very limited selection on hand at home, and buy just what I need, when I need it.
    Keep on hand only the few things you use regularly.
    It takes some prior planning, but you will always have fresh spices.
    In addition, that can of mustard might have been $5, you used .25 worth in your last recipe and are now throwing the rest away.

    We use Coleman's mustard in a 4oz can, it always keeps its strength right down to the last spoonful, maybe about 2 years.

    I would guess that it was a sub standard mustard to begin with. I always buy Guldens stone ground and it never loses its flavor, even opened.
