About Pickling Spice Mix
Our pickling spice mix is a blend of crumbled bay leaves, yellow mustard seeds, black peppercorns, white peppercorns, allspice berries, dill seeds, and celery seeds. This is just one style that results in a pretty typical pickle flavor, but there are a ton of pickle recipes out there to explore — sweet, sour, spicy, salty and combinations of all of the above.
Use this pickling spice mix with white vinegar and other seasonings of your choice — garlic, salt, onion, maybe some fresh dill. For bread and butter pickles, you’ll want to add sugar. And remember, pickles aren’t limited to the cucumber. You can pickle many vegetables and even some fruits!
Pickling spice can also be used to flavor non-pickle recipes such as soups, stews, braised meats, rice dishes, and more. It's a key ingredient in German noodle soup as well as Sauerbraten — one of Germany's national dishes, a red wine braised beef stew.
