This recipe is from "Canning For A New Generation" by Liana Krissoff, and I'm posting it in response to a request. I haven't tried it but it sounds pretty good. She gives directions for pasteurizing the pickles or for processing them. Supposedly, pasteurizing results in a crisper pickle. You could also add 1/4 teaspoon of pickle crisp to each jar if you are processing them, to help keep them crisp. Prep time includes overnight soak; "cooking" time is processing time.
