  • 1 tsp ground Ginger
  • 1 tsp dill Seeds
  • 1 tsp crushed chilli flakes

Directions

  1. If using cinnamon sticks or bay leaves, crush them up with a mortar and pestle into small pieces or use a spice grinder.
  2. Mix to combine your chosen ingredients in a small bowl.
  3. Store your pickling spice mix in a sealed, airtight container like a glass jar and keep in a cool, dark place. Use in any pickling recipe.
