How to make aristocrat pickles:

Slice cucumbers thin. Make cool brine of water and salt. Pour over cucumbers and let stand 1 week. Stir every morning. Drain pickles and cover with cold water (just to cover) mixed with alum. Simmer 10 minutes, then drain.

Cover with cold water again plus ginger. Simmer for 10 minutes and drain.

Drained pickles then go into final kettle and simmer 1/2 hour with the brine. Seal into jars while hot.
