CUCUMBER PICKLES. KITTIE M. SMITH.
Wash your cucumbers; then pour boiling water on them, and let them
stand eighteen hours. Take them out, and make a brine of one pint of
salt to one gallon of water; pour on boiling hot; let stand
twenty-four hours. Then wipe them dry, and pack them in your jar.
Put in slips of horseradish, and what spices you like. Cover with
cold cider vinegar. Put grape leaves on the top. They are ready to
use in twenty-four hours, and if the vinegar is pure cider vinegar,
will keep indefinitely.
