Pickling Spice

Pickling spice is a unique combination of spices that is widely used to pickle vegetables such as cabbage, beetroot and gherkins to name a few. The choice of vegetables is entirely down to your own personal taste but the possibilities with crunchy, raw vegetables are endless and will transform your menu. Pickling vegetables can also increase the lifespan of raw vegetables and will store in the fridge for a good amount of time.

How does pickling spice work?

Once you combine pickling spice with vinegar it activates the ingredients and develops a powerhouse of flavours. The combination of flavours will bring otherwise bland vegetables to life and it doesn’t take much effort to do at home, it simply requires a little time and patience for the vegetables to pickle. When vegetables are fermented in vinegar and pickling spice, the healthy bacteria helps to break down the natural sugars found in raw fruits and vegetables. The end result produces a tang, sour taste full of probiotics that are good for our bodies.

What is in pickling spice?

Depending on the pickling spice you choose to buy the contents will vary. For a powerful pickling spice that will infuse vegetables efficiently once combined with vinegar it should contain the following vegetables:

  • Mustard seeds
  • Coriander seeds
  • Cloves
  • Cinnamon

  • Ginger
  • And bay leaves.
