    2 1/2  pounds        mustard seed
    2      pounds        cayenne pods
    2 1/2  pounds        common black peppercorns
    1 1/2  pounds        white peppercorns

 An English mixture of whole spices, used for chutneys, pickled  fruits and 
 vegetables, and to spice vinegar. The spices can either be  tied in a small 
 muslin bag and removed after pickling, or added  straight to the vinegar, 
 depending on the type of pickle.
 
 Spice merchants have their own versions; here are two given in  Law’s Grocer’s 
 Manual (1950 edition). To make manageable domestic  amounts, substitute 25 g 
 (1 oz) or even 15 g (1/2 oz) for each pound.
