A question about a recipe: Seven Day Sweets (Luvey's Sweet Pickles)

2e8508a1-8496-4bb0-8e1d-9ce8933b8401.pickel

I have a question about the recipe "Seven Day Sweets (Luvey's Sweet Pickles)" from MrsWheelbarrow. The alum is for firmness? I am not concerned about alum; I just don't have any. The USDA no longer recommends its use, I think? Is the alum step necessary for the safety of the pickles?
