You will need eight 8-ounce mason jars or two quart-sized mason jars. Wash the jars with warm soapy water before use.
Take liberties with your spices. I like to add ginger peels on occasion, or follow my friend Allison’s twist with orange peel. Another great combination is sliced ginger and jalapenos, and whole coriander and cumin seeds. The more you add and the longer they steep, the stronger the flavor. Play with each new batch.
