Aunt Caroline's Dixieland Recipes/Pickles, Relishes/Cucumber Pickle
Take enough cucumbers to fill a two-gallon jar. Cut into lengthwise pieces and soak until fresh. Cover with equal parts of water and vinegar, and boil an hour and ten minutes. Then take them out and boil one and one-half hours in one gallon of fresh vinegar, two pounds of sugar, one tablespoonful of celery seed, one tablespoonful of tumeric, one teaspoonful each of cloves, mace and ginger, one tablespoonful of black pepper, and one of horse radish. When cold add one-half teaspoonful of cayenne pepper.
