Your pickle recipes should tell you this information, or else google it. I'm sure the amount depends on the recipe.

Pam, read this below on alum in pickling. Also this is a good home canning site. Backwoods Home Magazine for self-reliant living. www.backwoodshome.com/articles/clay53.html

It is a chemical made with aluminum that crisps pickles. You have to be careful though and make sure it gets rinsed off because it is potentially dangerous. 1 oz ingested has been known to kill an adult.
