    1/2 bushel of cukes and a whole damn lot of green beans worked out to 8 quarts of frozen beans, 11 pints of dilly beans, 19 quarts of dill pickle spears, 8 pints of bread & butter chips, and 5 small jars of leftover pickled garlic.

    Yeah...
    Started after work on Friday, around 18:00. Wrapped up around 1:00 Saturday Morning.
    So Friday was a long day; I generally wake up at 4:30 or so, and start my work day at 7:00

    They're water bath canned; those pickles are shelf-stable.

    For the Dills it's pretty basic; cukes plus a general 'Ball canning' brine, garlic, & dill. Processed for 10 minutes (pints) or 15 minutes (quarts)

    Brine recipe is:
    3 3/4 cups vinegar (I use cider, but white works too)
    3 3/4 cups water
    1/3 cup pickling salt
    Pickling spices in a cheesecloth bag

    I cold pack the cukes, put 3-4 pieces of garlic and a good-sized dill head in with them, and add the brine right before they go in the canner.

    The bread & butter is more complicated; it involves cutting up around 10 cups of cukes and 2-3 large onions, salting them with 1/2 cup of salt and letting them sit for about 2 hours, then rinsing them off. Pack them in jars and add the brine. The brine for the B&B pickles is 3 cups of vinegar, 2 cups of sugar, 2 TBSP mustard seed, 1 tsp celery seed, and 1 tsp turmeric.

    Then the process is the same; 10 minutes in the canner for pints, 15 for quarts, but I usually only do pints. I don't eat that many B&B pickles. :notsure:

    Still plenty of crunch. More so if you refrigerate them before you eat them, but even right off the shelf they're still pretty crispy for up to a year, if they last that long.
    You can add some calcium chloride or use the old pickling lime technique, if you like a REALLY crunchy pickle, but I've never felt the need because these always have plenty of snap.

    Edit- Plus, pickling lime is a pain to work with, and I don't have that sort of patience, lol.

    I've never actually tried pickle crisp; mine have some good snap without it, but I know that a lot of people use it. From what I understand it's less hassle than the old pickling lime method.
