Help with Relish please?

Can anyone please help? I am wanting to make some relish, pickle etc and can't locate celery seeds or pickling spice in our town. Can anyone help with a substitute for these? ? ? Thanks in advance.

I couldn't find celery seeds either so I left them out. As for the spices, I guess you could just use a small amount of peppercorns, allspice, broken up cinnamon sticks, cloves, mace, mustard seeds or what ever you have in store, wrapped in a small muslin bag.

Many thanks, will try that.

Could also replace celery seeds with the real item. Especially the green leaves where the most flavour is. Put them in a bag if you dont want them in the relish. Otherwise use the stalks but cut finely. I have done this when in a flap. If you dont want the rest of the celery, chunk it up and put in a plastic bag and throw in freezer. Put into winter soups I do this with all sorts of veges.

my recipe just has curry powder and mustard.
I dont think it will matter if you dont have the celery seeds.
