If you’re going to make a proper taco — and you are — you need to ensure that it’s well-seasoned. This blend is great as a rub to season pork or chicken; can be used to enhance sauces, salsas, or guacamole; and, in a pinch, makes a great laundry detergent.
Pickling spice is probably something you’ve either used a lot or not at all. You should be using it — pickling things is so simple, and you can get really creative with it. Just in the last month I’ve picked cucumbers (duh), red onions, carrots, habanero peppers, and brisket (aka, corned beef). Pickled vegetables make great snacks and even great gifts. Err, good gifts? I’ve never given any pickles as gifts, but maybe it’s a thing (spoiler alert, Grandma).
