cinnamon. Alternate layers of sugar and grapes as above until jar is
full. Turn plate on top; put on weight; tie cloth closely over top;

From MRS. H.J. PETO, of Arizona, Alternate Lady Manager
Wash the berries carefully and drain in a colander. For each quart of
fruit add two cups granulated sugar and one-half cup of pure cider
vinegar. Put all in a porcelain lined sauce pan, set on the stove and
scald thoroughly; then add one-half dozen cloves and one and one-half
ounces stick cinnamon for each quart of berries. While the fruit is
hot, pour into glass jars and cover at once; it will be ready for use
in three or four days. A delicious relish.

as you wish them to be, take them out of the syrup, and let them dry in

the stove in bunches.
