Pickling Spice

This blend of herbs and spices is the basis for so many pickled vegetable recipes and is used to flavor certain stews, soups and meats


I pickle SO many different veggies all summer long so it’s totally worth it for me to make a batch of my own pickling spices

Some of our favorites include Simple Refrigerator Pickles, Giardiniera, Pickled Red Onions & Pickled Jalapenos

Can I buy this spice mix at the grocer?  Sure.  But you get more bang for your buck when you mix your own and keep it on hand for various recipes that call for this spice blend

And it couldn’t be easier.  Measure out 1 tablespoon each of mustard seed, whole black peppercorns & crumbled bay leaves, 1 teaspoon each of coriander seeds & allspice and a 1/2 teaspoon each of red pepper flakes & cloves

Mix all of the herbs and spices and store in a glass jar for up to 6 months
