Learn what pickling spices to use for flavoring your pickled chili peppers or other pickled foods.

Pickling spices help give your preserved pickled peppers an additional, multi-dimensional flavor. A typical pickled pepper recipe consists of chili peppers, of course, with a salty vinegar brine and pickling spices added in.

While you can certainly pickle your peppers without the pickling spice, it is that combination of spices that brings nuance and flavor to your final product.

There are many spice blends available to you, depending on your personal tastes, although some go better in combination with others. There is no right or wrong combination. It is up to you to choose which flavors mingle best and what suits your personal palate.
