HELP?! My Great Aunts Pickle recipe is my favourite but I question the method.
I've been canning for years, but finally asked my GrA for her pickle recipe and was so surprised that it is a completely no-cook method. Just take sterile jars, fill with salt, vinegar, garlic, dill, cucs and water. Shake. Turn upside down over night and then off to cold storage. She is 82 years old and is famous for them, nobody dead yet! LOL IS this POSSIBLE!!!!!?????? Anyone heard of this method??? Making so many jars and just want to be sure. I KNOW we are supposed to water bath, start with hot brine. This just seems to counter intuitive.....BUT YET, it works! Help?
