Mixed Pickling Spice - The Traditional Way
of Preserving Fruit and Veg!

If like me you grow a lot of fruit and vegetables then you may have that nice problem of a glut leftover at the end of the growing season. No problem. With this pickling spice recipe you'll soon be pickling and preserving for use over the winter months. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)

Tip: A good idea is to crack the ingredients just before using to release their flavours. To do this, I wrap them in a tea towel and bash with a rolling pin. A pestle and mortar also works a treat for this.
