Excerpt: ... into the-infide of each, which has been already scraped, the same In-gredients ditefited for your Mang-0 Cucumbers, and tie them up: then boil your Pickle of Vinegar, Bay-Salt, and Spices, with these Mangoes in it 5 scumming it as it rises, and with it a piece of Allum as direited in the Receipt for Mango Cucumbers, and afterwards follow that Receipt till your Melons are fit to use.
