You can find pickling spice at most grocery stores—McCormick and other companies offer their versions—but this pickling spice, based on a recipe from Brian Polcyn, my Charcuterie coauthor, is far superior. It’s a similar profile but much more flavorful, like the difference between the Beatles’ version of “Eight Days a Week” and a Muzak version. Store it in your refrigerator and it keeps for months.
