Shelf Life of Ground Ginger

I have a jar of ground ginger which is "old". It has a dark spot at the very bottom of the jar.
What is the shelf life of bottled ground ginger? Thanks for your help.

Toss it. The dark spots can be areas that got damp and could be contaminated with bacteria. Wash jar, rinse with boiling water, turn upside down on a towel.

Go to a health food store or store like Sprouts or Sunflower or any that has spices in bins. Buy some fresh but make sure you jar has dried for a couple of days and is completely dry, no moisture in grooves of cap. Ginger is very inexpensive bought in bulk. Probably a quarter or fifty cents to fill the jar.
