Hi, Linda. If you follow the processing method in this recipe, the pickles will keep for up to a year. Also, we did a search for Ms. Fanning pickles and found that you can order them from Amazon.
Yes, for Refrigerator Pickles, you can reuse the brine to make more pickles out of different fruits and veggies!
It would be helpful to know the weight rather than the volume of salt you are using for these recipes. I can only get Morton’s kosher salt, not pickling salt. And kosher salts have a different volume than pickling salt. To confuse matters further, kosher salts have different volumes. A 3 pound box box of Morton is much smaller than a 3 lb box of Diamond Crystal brand.
This recipe is specific to canning and pickling salt and one rule with canning recipes is to not alter the ingredients. That said, if you’re intereted in a salt conversion chart, there is one right on the Morton’s site here: https://www.mortonsalt.com/article/salt-conversion-chart/
How long should I boil the pickles at 8,500 ft.? In fact how much do I increase the time for this elevation? Lost the Ball book?
This recipe sounds great as we are avoiding using lime. But how long do you process them? Do you put the jars in a canner and boil them? And for how long? We want to keep these through the year. Our garden is producing cukes so we have plenty! Thanks.
