Put it into an earthen dish and sprinkle with the salt, mixing it in well.
Cover with another dish and let it stand for twenty-four hours.
Drain the cabbage and take enough vinegar to cover it.
Add, for each pint, four whole cloves, two blades of mace and four whole allspice.
Boil the vinegar for two minutes and pour over the cabbage.
Seal in pint jars.
This amount makes about three pints.
The directions for sealing are to "cover it close with a cloth.
Then tie it over with leather," but we find that the glass jar method is more satisfactory.
