Fun Fact: Pickling arose from the need for explorers to preserve their meals for long journeys around the world.
Most frequently used with a solution of vinegar, salt and sugar to pickle cucumbers, Pickling Spice can also be added to pickling brine for peppers, carrots, onions, olives and many other items.
While originally developed as a preservation technique, pickling is now beloved and widely adapted worldwide for its delicious, bright, pungent flavors, which accent many different cuisines.
Pickling Spice can also be used to create sauerkraut and pickled eggs, or added to the braising jus of prepared meats such as corned beef.
Our Pickling Spice is made from a high-quality blend of traditional pickling herbs and spices, including mustard seeds, coriander, bay leaves, celery seeds, black pepper, clove, allspice, cinnamon, and cracked ginger, with a hint of red pepper flake for just a bit of heat. The freshness and high quality of the spices and herbs in our mix mean bolder flavors in the finished product. For even more potency, lightly toast or crush the spices immediately before using.
