    2      Tablespoons   Pickling Lime
    1 1/2  Quarts        White Vinegar

 Soak rind cubes overnight in lime water. Drain, rinse, soak in clear water
 2 hours. Combine vinegar, sugar, salt, lemon juice and spices and bring
 to a hard boil. Add rind and cook slowly, about 45 minutes, until rind is
 tender. Remove bag of spices and fill sterilized jars. Allow a small space
 at top of jars, and be sure rind is covered with liquid before sealing.
