Pickling Spice

Here's a recipe for pickling spice, which I've used successfully to make
dill pickles:  It's from a book called Better Than Store-Bought.

Pickling Spice

4 cinnamon sticks (each about 3 inches long)
1 piece dried gingerroot (1 inch long)
2 tblsp mustard seeds
2 tsp whole allspice berries
2 tblsp whole black peppercorns
2 tsp whole cloves
2 tsp dill seeds
2 tsp coriander seeds
2 tsp whole mace, crumbled medium fine
8 bay leaves, crumbled medium fine
1 small dried hot red pepper (1 1/2 inches long), chopped or crumbled
medium fine, seeds and all

Wrap the cinnamon and gingerroot loosely in a piece of cloth and bash them
with a hammer until well crumbled.  Discard any strongy parts of the
ginger, then mix with other ingredients.
