Last year at this time, I received a question from Vivian – who is clearly starting to think of her gardening and canning plans for the coming year. It’s a question I get a lot, so I’m glad to share my thoughts.
She writes: “I used Mrs Wages dill pickle mix to can pickles this summer. The pickles are soft and mushy – not crisp. What happened? Thanks!”
I’ve received quite a few questions about pickles and pickling (more than just cucumbers). Rather than post each one individually, I thought it might be best to list them all in one place.
And, of course, if you have more questions, let me know on my Facebook page or by sending your question to me via my website. I’m always happy to reply back (by email when possible) and post the questions and answers here on my blog.
