The next morning, pour water off cucumber slices and wash good.
Now, put the cucumber slices in 2 gallons of ice water with 2 Tablespoons alum. Let them soak for 3 hours. Drain well.

4 pints vinegar
5 pounds sugar
2 Tablespoons salt
2 Tablespoons pickleing spice(you can tie this in a small bag to keep from floating in pickles)
