Whole damsons boiled in vinegar with sugar and spices.
Original Receipt in 'Miss Leslie's New Cookery Book' by Eliza Leslie - 1857
Do these in the same manner as plums but as they are much more acid allow brown sugar of the best kind. Plums or damsons may be pickled plain and with little trouble if full ripe pricked with a needle and packed down in a stone jar with profuse layers of brown sugar between the layers of fruit, the jars filled up with cold cider vinegar and putting sweet oil at the top.
