???'s Chase's dill pickles
So, on Saturday I succumbed to the temptation and canned 8 quarts of Sharon's dill pickles. I have already tried 6 other recipes in search of the perfect pickle for DH as far as sour, sweet and crunchy goes.
After reading all the rave revues from veteran canners, I decided to try them, despite my misgivings about the vinegar:water ratio and open kettle canning.That's another issue for the food police and why I'm not asking over at the harvest forum.
The jars didn't seal. Are they supposed to? Years ago as a young bride I open kettle canned many things, but the flats always sealed for me.
Anyway, I just wanted to know if you think I should store them or toss them. I'm getting a half bushel of cukes a day, and the dill and garlic are from the garden also, so not that big of a loss.
