About this recipe:
There was always a tradition of pickles in our house and shop bought spice never quite did it justice so we started to make our own. I'm afraid I can't share the family pickle recipe but I can share how to make the spice mix!
1 (5cm) piece cinnamon stick
1 small dried red chili
1 (2.5cm) section dried root ginger
2 tablespoons yellow mustard seed
2 tablespoons black Mustard seed
2 tablespoons coriander seed
2 tablespoons allspice berries
2 tablespoons black peppercorns
1 tablespoon dill seed
1 tablespoon fennel seed
2 teaspoons whole cloves
2 teaspoons celery seed
2 teaspoons mace blades, crushed
8 small bay leaves, crushed

Pound your cinnamon in a pestle and mortar to break it up a bit.
Chop up the dried chlli and the dried ginger into small chunks (don't worry too much about it the dried ginger never chops the way I want it to so it's enough to just get it a bit smaller).
Combine all your ingredients in a bowl. Stir together.
Pack in an airtight container and store in a cool dry place out of sunlight. Use in any recipe calling for pickling spice.
