 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      c             Cucumbers (small)
    4      ts            Sugar
    2      ts            Canning/pickling salt
    2      ts            Mustard, dry
      1/8  ts            Alum
                         Cider vinegar
                         Water
 
   Wash cucumbers in cool water and pack into a canning jar big enough to hold
   them.  Add sugar, salt, dry mustard and alum.  Fill jar about 2/3 full with
   vinegar.  Fill remaining portion of jar to cover cucumbers with water.  Put
   lid on jar.
    Agitate lightly every day for about a week to mix spices in with cucumbers.
   Then put in a cool dark place for about 3 months while the cucumbers work.
    NOTES:
    *  The most lip smackin' pickles you ever tasted, this recipe came from my
   wife’s grandmother.
    *  Don't be too impatient to try the pickles.  They taste terrible if they
   haven't worked.  Also, you do not have to seal these jars.  They will keep
   for quite some time if stored in a cool/dark location.
    : Difficulty:  easy
   : Time:  10 minutes preparation, 3 months waiting.
   : Precision:  Approximate measurement OK.
