India Pickle No 3

Boil one pound of salt, four ounces of ginger, eight ounces of shalots

or garlic, a spoonful of cayenne pepper, two ounces of mustard seed, and

six quarts of good vinegar. When cold, you may put in green fruit or any

vegetable you choose, fresh as you pick them, only wiping off the dust.

Stop your jar close, and put in a little turmeric to colour it.
