Pickling Spices


Ingredients: Coriander, Dill Seed, Mustard Seeds, Bay Leaf, Cassia, Red Pepper, Allspice

Would your Grandma have ever dreamed that her pickling spices would become trendy? Pickling Spices are a wonderful blend of currently popular "in" flavors and depending on the blend you’ll typically find some combination of –allspice, bay leaves, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, chile peppers, cloves, ginger, mace, mustard seed and pepper. As with any regional blend you’ll find that the exact recipe varies from family to family.

Pickling spice is a blend used with liquid, typically vinegar, to pickle various foods, but it is also used in seasoning a variety of other dishes. Our Pickling Spice is a blend of whole spices and is artfully hand mixed with rich, premium spices we know our grandma would be proud of.

When using pickling spice it is best to wrap them in cheesecloth or a small sachet and cook them with the pickling mixture. We recommend removing them after cooking rather than aging them with the pickled vegetable.

For best results in pickling we like to boil the vegetables until tender and then drain. Refill your cooking pot with vinegar, salt and sugar and add your pickling spice mixture and bring your vegetables to a boil again for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool. Once cooled, pour your vegetables into sterilized jars and seal. Helpful hint: remove the pickling spice mix before jarring the pickle.

A good pickling spice mix not only adds that familiar flavor to your pickles, it can also be used to infuse a sophisticated flavor to beans, braised meats, soups, stews, rice dishes. We especially enjoy adding them to the slow cooker for some simple and delicious meals. Just as you do when pickling place your pickling spice mixture a piece of cheesecloth, tie it off and place into the pot or slow cooker. Be prepared to enjoy the unique aroma and taste this blend provides.
