      Sorry to disagree with anyone but there is NO danger of botulism in this recipe. Botulism requires a low acid environment and is not an issue in this high-acid food. Yes, modern canning methods say they must be processed but many people have had sucess without doing so - probably because they are very careful about cleanliness. Other types of spoilage will be fairly obvious and most of us would know to discard a spoiled product.

      This recipe is wonderful! You can't go wrong with it. Personally, I don't process the pickles because I like the texture better this way. Pickles are a high acid food and I don't worry much about them. However, it is such a blessing that we can all make our own personal choices! Thanks for the recipe Nancy!

      This recipe deserves five stars. I have a recipe similar to this one that I've used for years, and it's a GREAT recipe. Just remember to put those hot, filled jars in a hot water bath and process them for the time required for your altitude. The FDA has changed it's rules over the last several years, so for safety sake, we need to follow them.
