I appreciate all the videos you guys make and how clear and useful they are! I did want to tell you that I followed the dill pickle recipe and the pickles came out very soggy. After consulting several other recipes, I believe the time you say to cook them (30 minutes) is WAY too long. The spices were very good, though, so we are going to try a 5 minute cooking time on our next batch and hopefully the pickles will be crisp.

The Ball Blue Book (the bible for most canners) says hot pack “bread and butter” pickles for 10 minutes and “dills” for 15 minutes. I have only pickled beets, but this year I am going to pickle cukes “kosher-style” because I enjoy the added hottness. Ball also recommends cutting off the blossom end. THAT is good to know, cuz I didn’t know it. :{)
