The Yankee Pickler - Corned Beef and Pickling Spice Blend
Get yourself out of that “What should I make for dinner?” pickle. Buy some of our Boston Spice’s “The Yankee Pickler” and grab some corned beef and you're well on your way to some delicious meals. Make the New England classic corned beef and cabbage, or how about some tasty corned beef hash to go with those eggs. Our “The Yankee Pickler” has 15 unique spices blended together for that perfect pickled taste.
In colonial America, the pickle patch was an important part of life. Pickles were critical to America's pioneers because, under frontier conditions, pickles were the only zesty, juicy, green, succulent food available for many months of the year. Homemakers were expected to "put down" some pickles in stone crocks, and to "put up" some pickles and pickle relishes in glass jars.
Boston Spice Corned Beef:
- Place 2.5lb to 5lb piece of corned beef in a pot and added enough cold water to cover the meat by about 1 inch. Add 1/4 cup of Boston Spice's "The Yankee Pickler" to the pot. Bring the water to a boil. Once it starts to boil, reduce the heat to a low simmer. Cover the pot and cook for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until the meat is fork tender. If your corned beef is bigger, add a little more "The Yankee Pickler". This also works great in your slow cooker.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
need spice mix for gray corned beef not red.
Hello! You can use either of our "Southie" or "The Yankee Pickler" spice blend gray corned beef. If you are using already corned beef, you add either spice to your cooking liquid. If you are brining your own brisket, most people who like to "corn" their own brisket have told us they add some of the spice blend to their brining solution, then after the brisket is "corned", they add the rest to the cooking liquid.
can you take the Southie blend and add celery seed and anise? I have a pickling spice I love and it has all the southie ingredients but also these other two. Can not find this combo anywhere else...
Hi. Thank you for the question. Yes, we can do that. We can add the same amounts that are in The Yankee Pickler based on their amounts in the size you want or if you have a specific amount you want to be added, let us know. Please email us directly.
