Oh the joys of Pickling Season!

August 18, 2021 No Comments

We are in the midst of 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 liter 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.
