These aromatic, spicy pickled pears keep for ages and make wonderful homemade gifts. Allspice, peppercorns and juniper - best known for the primary flavouring in gin - add a wonderfully distinctive flavour and fragrance to the pears, while the kick from the chilli balances out their sweetness. These pickled treats can be eaten cold with a selection of cold cut meats, or warmed and served with rich game or goose.

I bought these spices last Christmas and served pickled pears with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on boxing day every body was blown away with the combination it really goes well. It also makes a very good starter with out the scrambled eggs. It last well in the fridge if it gets that far. !!!!!!!!!!!! MARGARET

Thank you for your great feedback Margaret! That sounds absolutely delicious and we're happy to hear everybody enjoyed it!


Very nice subtle flavour and a great way of using up pears if you have a pear tree. The Pickled Pears kept for months in the jars, until I remembered I’d made them. Once we started eating them they were all gone! I will be making more this year.

Great to hear how much you love the aromatic festive flavour of our pickled pear spices, John!
