 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   25                    dill-size cucumbers (2 gal.)
    2      C.            coarse salt
    4 1/2  Qt.           warm water
      1/4  C.            alum
    1      Qt.           vinegar
    8      C.            white sugar
      1/2  Tsp.          oil of cinnamon
      1/8  Tsp.          oil of cloves
 
 Thinly slice cucumbers and soak in a salt brine of the
 coarse salt and warm water for 14 days. Place a saucer over
 the pickles and weight down. On the 14th day, wash the pickles
 3 times in cold water. Add the alum with enough cold water to
 cover; replace the saucer and weights; let stand for 1 day.
 Next day, wash thoroughly and make a syrup of the remaining
 ingredients, being very careful to add no more than 1/8 tea- 
 spoon oil of cloves. Bring this syrup to a boil and pour over
 the pickles. Drain the syrup off each day for 3 days; reheat
 and pour over the pickles. The last day, pack the pickles in
 jars and heat the syrup boiling hot and add green coloring.
 Seal and store.
