It is Pickling Season!

It’s pickling season, so what are you waiting for? You can pickle or ferment any veg coming out of the garden or from the farmers market 💚 Whether you are fermenting, krauting or preserving in brine, our Pickling Spice is the perfect accompaniment! My recipe for classic Dill Pickles is as follows: Add a tbs of Gathering Place Trading Pickling Spice to each litre jar along with 2 heads of dill and 3 garlic cloves. Stuff the sterilized jars with cucumbers filling the spaces as tightly as possible. Pour boiling brine over cucumbers leaving a 2 cm space to the rim. Brine is 3 cups apple cider vinegar, 2 and 3/4 cups water, 1/4 cup of GP Antarctic Pure coarse sea salt heated to boiling.
Wipe rims of jars, place heated undamaged lids/seals on hot jars, add canning ring, making sure to not over tighten. Place jars in a hot water bath for 8 minutes. Remove from water and listen for the happy snapping of the seals as the jars cool.
