Recipe: Sweet & Spicy Pickling Spice
This DIY Sweet & Spicy Pickling Spice is great for carrots and fennel.
Great for pickling jalapenos, watermelon rind, beets, onions, carrots, or fennel.
Mix all ingredients together and use about 1 to 1 ½ tsp. of the spice blend per pint of pickled goods. To bring out the full flavor, toast the spice blend in a skillet over medium heat for 1 to 3 min., or until aromatic, before adding to your pickling brine.
