Pickling Spices are a hot mix of sweet, peppery flavours. The spice mix contains cloves, allspice, brown mustard seeds, coriander seeds, mace blades and galangal.

Pickling involves immersing foodstuffs in a substance such as brine or vinegar to extend shelf life. The process has been around for centuries! It was first created to preserve food found in abundance or for long sea journeys.

Pickling spices have a confusing origin. Some believe they derive from India, where they are called ‘achar’. Historically, the country pickled cucumbers and traded them to the Middle East. Others believe the spices are European, where pickling appears within Czech, Polish and Eastern Europe cuisines. The name ‘pickling’ could derive from the Dutch word ‘pekel’.

Pickling spices are perfect to use when pickling onions, beetroot, eggs and mixed vegetables. Try also for your next homemade sauerkraut!

To use, simply add to vinegar and bring to the boil. Leave to cool and the flavours will develop. Strain and then use the flavoured vinegar to pickle anything you can get your hands on!

    Lovely mix. My beetroot were great.It is wonderful to find such a great mix as it is very difficult to find this locally. Thanks

    Delighted to receive my pickiling spices so quickly. I’d been searching for ages for a high quality blend and so now I’m ready to start filling my pickling jars to enjoy at Christmas.
