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 "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.

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!
