DIY Pickling Spice Mix

Get ready for pickle season! This blend isn’t just for pickles, though. Use it for pickling your favorite summer fruits and vegetables too.

This recipe is given in “parts” which simply describes proportions. In other words, if you use a cup to represent a “part,” then two cups would be two parts.

2 parts organic celery seed

2 parts organic chili flakes

1 part organic caraway seed

1/2 part organic rainbow peppercorns


Combine all ingredients in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Store in a cool, dry place until ready to use.
