Re the safety of Chases Pickle recipe from another thread
This comment, in reference to another recipe, is from the Harvest forum. Please do not make the pickle recipe from the Chases Pickle recipe thread.
"That recipe meets the MINIMUM safe level of vinegar for cucumber pickles - 1:1 ratio of vinegar to water."
So the MINIMUM safe ration of vinegar to water for cucumbers is 1:1. The Chases pickle recipe does not meet that minimum standard.
