    Basic Pickling Spice Blend 

    2 TBS coriander seed

    2 TBS black peppercorns

    2 TBS mustard seed

    1 TBS allspice berries

    1 TBS ground mace

    1 TBS whole cloves

    1 teaspoon red chile pepper flakes

    1 teaspoon ground ginger

    2 small cinnamon sticks, crushed or broken into pieces

    2 bay leaves, crumbled 

    Mix all ingredients until well-blended and store in an airtight container in a cool dark place.

    Note: Ground spices tend to make brines a little cloudy. If this bothers you, only use the whole spices in the recipes. In the case of the ground ginger, use a small piece of ginger root in your recipe instead.
