Peel fresh, green cucumbers and cut them lengthwise into four or more pieces. Wash the pieces, dry them carefully with a napkin, and pack them in a glazed earthenware jug. Bring to a boil enough vinegar to cover the cucumbers and, while still hot, pour it over them and set the jug aside for 2 days. Pour off the vinegar, bring it to a boil, and repour it over the cucumbers while still hot. Repeat this again after 2 days. Coarsely pound together
