Pickling Spice

I haven't pickled beets although I think they taste great. It took a lot of searching to discover my own pickling spice recipe. I have to say I was surprised at the ingredients. It will be quite a treat to taste these beets. I will can them in a water bath canner so they can be shelved in my pantry.

Pickling Spice:

2 tablespoons mustard seeds2 tablespoons whole allspice2 teaspoons coriander seeds2 teaspoons whole cloves1 teaspoon ground ginger1 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes1 bay leaves, crumbled1 cinnamon sticks ( 2 inches)  I couldn't find whole allspice berries so I used 1 t ground. I mixed all this up (and cut up the cinnamon into chunks).
