Pickling Spice

I got into a pickling kick and wanted a really good recipe for cold pickling like Claussen. The spice you find in the stores is good, but if you have these ingredients, why not make it yourself. This can be used for more than just making pickles. If you like it, great! Take the old spice jar and reuse it by washing it completely, letting it dry overnight so NO WATER is left, fill it up and relabel it. If you don't like it, you did not spend a lot of money on something you may never use again.
