Ruth Schmidt's Fourteen Day Pickles

2 gallons cukes split lengthwise no matter how small.

Pour over them 1 gallon salt water--1 pint salt to gallon of water.

Let stand 7 days then drain and cover with boiling water 24 hours.

Drain and cover with 1 gallon water to which you add 1 tablespoon alum--let stand 24 hours. Drain.

Take 2 1/2 gallons vinegar--8 cups sugar00and a handful of mixed spices and boil 5 minutes and pour this over boiling hot.

Let stand 24 hours each day for 4 days--reheat and pour over each day--on last day bring to boil and pour over picks and seal in jars.
