How to Make Pickled Spruce Tips

Pickled Spruce Tips


  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 cups spruce tips, rinsed well


  • In a small saucepan, add vinegar, honey, salt, pepper and water and, over high heat, bring to a boil.
  • In a 500 ml mason jar, pack the spruce tips well.  Once the brine reaches a boil, carefully pour into mason jar over the spruce tips.
  • Leave jar to cool (stir 3 or 4 times to ensure all spruce tips are submerged in the hot brine).
  • Once it's cool, cover the jar with a lid and store in the fridge indefinitely.
