I'm giving this 5 stars based on two criteria; first the spices are (largely) the same ingredients found in commercial pickling spice and secondly, I boiled some on the stove and the smell was wonderful (like a good pickling spice should be.) Not sure of the economics of making it, that would depend where you buy spices. I had ran out of the bottled variety and made this in a pinch.
I used this pickling spice to make Pop's pickles (recipe also on AllRecipes.com). The farmer's market was out of pickling spice, so I pulled up the first recipe I could find on Google and bought all the ingredients. Two weeks later the first jar of pickles was opened, and my friends declared them "Christmas pickles" because they taste like Christmas. This was a bit too cinnamon-y for both myself and the BF, so next time I'll try and leave out the sticks. Overall, though, this is a pretty decent recipe.
Had an abundance of cucumbers in the garden and decided to make some pickles. I didn't have any pickling spice made up and this recipe was just the ticket!! Thanks for posting. Great recipe!
I used this "Homemade Pickling Spice" recipe for making pickled eggs (Allrecipes, Popa's Pickled Eggs, bd.weld). They taste excellent! Thank you Mooseinthekitchen for sharing your recipe.
Wonderful! This is a recipe I will use again and again! Thanks for posting it. Really wonderful and absolutely no changes.
