 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      gallons       large cucumber rings -- peeled, seeded
    8 1/2  quarts        water
    2      cups          pickling lime
                         SYRUP
    2      cups          vinegar
    2      cups          water
   10      cups          sugar
    1      package       red hots (approx. 1 cup)
    8      sticks        cinnamon
                         BRINE
    1      cup           vinegar
                         red food coloring
    1      tablespoon    alum
                         water to cover
 
 Peel, slice and seed cucumbers.  I use a melon ball scoop to remove the
 seed.  The cucumber is now in a form of a ring.  Place cucumbers in the 8
 1/2 quarts water and the pickling lime.  Soak 24 hours.  Drain and wash
 in clear water.  Soak 3 hours in cold water.  Drain. Simmer 2 hours in
 brine of vinegar, red food coloring water and alum.  Drain again.  Heat
 syrup and por hot syrup over rings.  Let stand overnight.  Drain syrup
 from rings and reheat syrup again and pour over rings again.  Do this 3
 times (3 days).  Heat the 4th time with cucumber rings and syrup and seal
 in jars.
