Olive Plums

Green plums. Water. Baking soda.

Gather green plums before they begin to change color. Wash them, and put them into a weak brine for twenty-four hours. Drain, and put them into another brine, adding one teaspoonful of baking soda to each gallon of water. Bring to a boil, when the plums will turn to an olive-green color.

Pack at once in sterilized jars, fill to overflowing with the boiling brine and seal at once.

Let stand for eight weeks before using.
