Here's a quote from the "Pickle Cucumbers" recipe (lower right), "Gather the smallest as may bee and wipe them with a cloth. Put them in a good pipkin."
The cookbook is from the rare book collection at the University of Virginia Tech. Here's the link: http://spec.lib.vt.edu/mss/pdf/CUBG.pdf. I've been making journals and booklets lately, so I might make a special one for these pages.
