There’s no real recipe to pickling spice, a little of this and a little of that usually, with a dash of your favorites. The only rule is that there should be plenty of balance between hot, sweet, sour, pungent, and savory spices.
Ours is a simple blend; black peppercorns, dill seed, bay leaf, chile flakes, allspice berries, cassia bark, and mustard seeds form the bulk of it. It’s a fantastic base that takes well to personal blends. Our writer, Garrett, loves to add star anise, dried cloves and juniper berries and use it to pickle chile peppers.
