Pickling Spice Recipe
Foods are often simmered in pickling spices and water, such as pork chops, sauerbraten, New England boiled dinner, and corned beef and cabbage. You can use more or less of these ingredients to your taste.
Makes. About 3/4 cup
Preparation time. 10 minutes
2 tablespoons whole black peppercorns
3 inches cinnamon sticks, total length
2 tablespoon dill seeds
1 tablespoon hot red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon mustard seeds, any color
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
1 tablespoon celery seeds
4 bay leaves
1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves
1 tablespoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons whole allspice berries
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1 tablespoon mace
1/2 teaspoon cardamom seeds (or 1 tablespoon pods)
1 tablespoon juniper berries
2 star anise pods
Put the cinnamon sticks and peppercorns in a plastic bag and smash them with a meat tenderizer or a hammer. Crumble the bay leaves into flakes about 1/8" size. Mix all the ingredients together and store in a tight jar.
