Seasoned Pioneers - Pickling Spices (23g)


In Stock


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, and mixed vegetables. Try also for your next homemade sauerkraut!
