Method

  • Put the bay leaves, peppercorns, rosemary, oregano, celery seed, caraway seed, and chili flakes into a spice grinder or clean coffee mill and pulse until finely ground. If you prefer, you can use a mortar and pestle.
  • Combine the ground mix with the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly. Store in a tightly sealed glass jar or shaker.
