   garlic, bay leaves, brown sugar, and vinegar.  Simmer
   over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour.
   Stir in the cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mustard, and
   cayenne pepper.  Continue to simmer over low heat for
   2 hours. Stir regularly with wooden spoon to prevent
   scorching.  Add the black pepper and salt to taste.
   Remove and discard the bay leaves.  Cool and ladle
   into clean, hot, half pint jars, leaving a 1/2 inch
   head space. Seal and process in a water bath for 10
   minutes.
