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


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?
