Step 2: Prep Time!
Spices commonly used in pickling spice (see picture):
black pepper corns
dried red peppers
Prepare your work surface. Put a clean towel on your counter. Get your tongs or silicon gloves ready! When everything is set up and prepared, mix your pickle juice ingredients - salt, vinegar, water - and heat them up in a pot on the stove. Stir until salt dissolves.
