You should try and can a jar the regular way only open it the next day and see what you got. When you can pickles the regular way your jar forms a vacuum anyhow and they are right tasty the very next day so barring the heat treatment I don't see what you are gaining by doing it in the fridge unless it makes them more crisp.

Nice color to them. Are you going to try some okra too? That's one of my favorites.

Sure will. It's getting tall but hasn't started fruiting yet. Should be soon though.

Get Deadeye to collect some muscadine leaves on your next batch and see if that doesn't make them crisper.

Maybe. We've gone through 3 quarts of pickles and 2 quarts of relish in 3 weeks. The plants were starting to degrade and make some funky cukes though. Thanks for the recipes

I did a test with and without and it seems it does make a difference in the crispness. Those Italians, while they may look dim, must know a little something. :lol2:

I haven't cracked any with the leaves yet, but several people have mentioned have also mentioned it works. I did 1/4 tsp of the pickle crisp and 1 muscadine leaf with each jar after the first few. I'm a slow learner
