   Select 50 tiny cucumbers.  Wash.  Cover with cold
   water.  Handle as little as possible to avoid bruises.
   Let stand 2 hours. Drain. Cover with boiling water to
   which 3/4 cup salt has been added. Cover and let stand
   2 days. Drain.  Discard all cucumbers that are not
   solid and in good condition. Pack in sterilized jars.
   Cover with the following pickling liquid, which should
   be hot but not boiling:  To sufficient vinegar to
   cover the pickles add 3 chopped green peppers, 1/4 cup
   salt, 6 whole allspice, 6 peppercorns, 1 1/2 sticks
   cinnamon, 1 blade mace, 1 bay leaf, 1 small onion,
   minced, and 1 1/2 tablespoons mustard seed. Pickles
   will be ready for use after 8 weeks. The Household
