Lemon Pickle

  • 6 lemons
  • 1/2 pound salt
  • 1/4 ounce cloves
  • 1/4 ounce mace
  • 1/4 ounce turmeric
  • 3 pints vinegar
Cut the lemons in halves; squeeze out the juice; cut each half into four pieces; rub each piece with salt, place them in a slow oven till they are quite brown and hard. Then rub them with the turmeric and place them in a jar. Put the juice, spice and vinegar and quarter ounce of cayenne pepper over them. Cover them up and set the jar on a hot hearth or on the back of the stove till the pickles are soft.
