Dill Pickles.

Select medium-sized cucumbers; wash gently and cover with clear water. Next day, drain and wipe dry; pack in half-gallon jars with plenty of dill between layers.

To each jar, add two small red peppers or one-half large one, one level teaspoon white pepper, two bay leaves and a thin slice of horseradish root.

To six quarts of water, add one pound rock salt (use no other) and one level teaspoon powdered alum. Heat this mixture to boiling point and add one quart cider vinegar and pour over pickles, covering them well. Seal while hot.

I used to have a Kerr Canning booklet that had a recipe for low sodium dill pickles that I made for my mother who was on a salt restricted diet. I lost the booklet and would love to have it again. Thank you for any help!!
