Pickling spice
« on: September 14, 2010, 18:13 »
Going to do Val's marrow chutney tomorrow, but the recipe just says pickling spice. Do I buy some spices already mixed, or shall I just use the same mixture of spices that go into spiced vinegar for pickled shallots?

Cheers,

S.

They're sold in a packet labelled pickling spice :)

So what is best?

Used both Sarsons Malt and Pickling vinegar with beetroot and eggs (not together) recently and not sure about which tastes better.  Diluted both by about a third as they tasted too strong and added a couple of tablespoons of sugar.  Used all unheated but only kept for a couple of weeks so may not stand the test of time.  Total novice at this so any advice welcome.

Recommend Val's quick Spiced Vinegar recipe. Excellent stuff and easy too.

I like pickling vinegar spicy, so you may want to add a little sugar to each jar, as Val suggests.

How finely chopped should the marrow be BTW? Operation postponed until today.

I'll do the chopping tonight and leave overnight. Then do rest of the stuff tomorrow.

Courgettes have a habit of creeping up on you!

Oh bum.

Going to need some luck. Forgot to put the spices in a bag, shallots made me cry and it's stinking the house out. And it's not looking done yet...
