this looks better:

14 DAY SWEET PICKLES

2 gallons sliced cucumbers
2 c. salt
1 gallon boiling water
1 tbsp. alum
5 pt. boiling vinegar
6 c. sugar
1/2 oz. celery seed
1 oz. cinnamon stick
3 c. sugar
Sterilized jars


Into sterilized stone jar, put 2 gallons of cucumbers, washed and sliced lengthwise. Regardless of size, they must be sliced or they will shrivel. Dissolve 2 cups salt in 1 gallon boiling water and pour, while hot, over pickles. Cover and weight down the pickles and let stand 1 week.
On the eighth day, drain, then pour 1 gallon boiling water over pickles; let them stand 24 hours.

On the 9th day, drain. Pour 1 gallon of boiling water with 1 tablespoons powdered alum over the pickles; let stand 24 hours.

On the following day (10th day), drain again and pour 1 gallon boiling water over them. Let stand 24 hours, then drain.

For the pickling mixture, combine 5 pints vinegar, boiling hot, with 6 cups sugar, the celery seed, cinnamon stick; pour this over the pickles. Drain off for 3 mornings; reheat it and add 1 cup sugar each morning. With the third and last heating, pack the pickles into sterilized jars, pour the heated liquid over the pickles and seal. VERY GOOD.

My grandfather made sauerkraut.

I once asked him about the dead flies in the barrel.

He said, "They add favor."

He also took his apples every fall to a local cider mill to be pressed. I once asked him about the worms in the apples.

He said, "They add flavor."
