Sweet Cantaloupe Pickle
Sweet Cantaloupe Pickle Preparation
Seven pound melon, nearly ripe but not yellow; lay in weak brine all night, then take lump of alum size of a hickory nut and drop in water; boil fruit half an hour. Add to fruit three pounds of sugar, two ounces cinnamon, one ounce mace and one and a half ounces cloves. Boil vinegar, sugar and spice, and pour boiling hot over the fruit. If you want the pickle to keep well put the whole on the fire and scald 20 minutes. It is then fit for the table.
