How do I easily pickle vegetables?

My son and I got to talking about pickles the other day and how various vegetables can be pickled. We ended up at Penzey’s (we’re so lucky to have a store down the street!) and I got their pickling spice blend. We have some baby zucchini and carrots. Now… what the heck do I do?

I Googled around a bit and found a bunch of stuff that requires special equipment. I’m very confused. The spice mixture includes yellow and brown Canadian mustard seeds, Jamaican allspice, cracked China cassia, cracked Turkish bay leaves, dill seed, Zanzibar cloves, cracked China ginger, Tellicherry peppercorns, star anise, Moroccan coriander, juniper berries, West Indies mace, cardamom and medium hot crushed red peppers.
