Pickling Lime - 1 lb

Be the first to leave a review

Have you ever wondered why modern pickles aren't crunchy like pickles used to be?  Old-fashioned pickle preparations included lime, which causes the pickles to preserve their crunchiness through the canning process.  Make sure to wash the pickles thoroughly before canning, since the lime can neutralize some of the acid used for canning.  That can lead to unsafe canning conditions, with bacterial growth or even botulism as a result.
