Adding spices and herbs to your preserves can completely transform the contents inside your jar. A touch of rosemary to rhubarb jam makes a completely different flavoured jam than the addition of vanilla. This is where exploring new recipes and getting creative in the kitchen can be a lot of fun. Pickles made with the exact same brine and same vegetables except with altered spices or herbs end up tasting extremely different.
Here are a few of the recipes out there with interesting herb/spice combinations that I have put on my list to try in 2014. What's your favourite preserving recipe that uses interesting spices?
