2 gallons of cucumbers washed and placed in a plastic or crockery container. (Do NOT use a galvanized container.) Cover with brine made of 1 gallon of cold water and 1 pint of pickling salt. Let stand for 1 week. (NOTE: Mold may form on the top, but not to worry.) Drain and rinse the pickles. Replace pickles in the cleaned container and cover with boiling water. Let stand for 24 hours. Drain off and recover with boiling water in which a Jump of alum (the size of a walnut) has been dissolved. Let stand again for 24 hours. Drain and cut the pickles in half, lengthwise. Replace in the container. Now, make a syrup; heat to boiling 2½ quarts dark vinegar, 9 cups sugar, 2 teaspoons celery seed (tie in bag), 6 cinnamon sticks and small handful of horseradish roots. Pour hot over the pickles. For three successive mornings, pour off the syrup; reheat to boiling and pour back over the pickles. Then, pack into hot, sterilized jars, pour the syrup over the pickles in the jars and seal. DO NOT leave out the horseradish roots!
