Pare and slice cucumbers and cook in water to cover
until tender. Drain, season with salt, a few grains of cayenne, and to
one cup of the cooked cucumber add a level teaspoon of gelatin dissolved
in a spoonful of cold water. Stir the soaked gelatin in while the
cucumber is hot. Set into a cold place to chill and become firm. If a
large mold is used break up roughly into pieces, if small molds are
taken then unmold onto lettuce leaves and serve with mayonnaise.
