Homemade Pickling Spice Recipe

I love pickling spice.  It’s great in pickles, both fermented and pickled.  It’s also nice to run through the spice mill and grind into a fine powder, which can be sprinkled over things or stirred into sauces.  I don’t like buying the pre-made little jars at the supermarket because I think they’ve been there for a long time.  I don’t think there’s much turnover on the little jars because not many people make their own pickles any more.

Solution: make your own!  Here’s a recipe that I’ve been using for a while.  I think I have the proportions down right now.  If you want to make it and you’re missing some of the ingredients, hit the Amazon tabs below the recipe.

About John MacDowall

I was born in Poughkeepsie, NY. We moved to a farm during middle school where I learned about raising animals and growing food. Now, I live in the affluent suburbs of Washington, DC and wonder why people eat the way they do.
