Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon celery seeds
  • 6 bay leaves, shredded with scissors
  • ½ cup kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons ground cayenne pepper

Pound the peppercorns, celery seeds, and bay leaf with the salt in a mortar, in batches if necessary. Place in a small bowl and stir in the cayenne. Stored in an airtight container, it will keep for up to 2 months.
