lay it in a Bell – metal* or Brass Pott then put in a Pint of
Water and a Pint of Vinegar, so do till your Pickle is an
Inch above your Samphire; have a Lid fit for the Pott
and Paste it close down, that no Steam may go out, keep it
in Boiling an Hour, take it off, and cover it with Old
Sacks, or any other Cloaths, under, over and all about the
Pott; when its Cold, put it up in Tubbs or Potts the Best
by itself; the Great Stalks lay upmost in Boiling, it will
keep the cooler and Better. The Vinegar you use must be
the Best.
