    Pickling Spice Blend for Crab & Shrimp Boils

    • 1 tablespoon mustard seeds
    • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
    • 1 tablespoon whole cloves
    • 2 teaspoons whole allspice
    • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds
    • 2 teaspoons dill seeds
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 teaspoon celery seed
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 5 dried bay leaves
    • 1/2 teaspoon red chile flakes (optional)

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

    Note: Ground spices tend to make the brine a little cloudy. If this bothers you, use a small piece of ginger root in your recipe instead.
