Always my ONLY recipe to use when canning - I use the ice bath for 6 Hours when I can, but even just 2 hrs makes 100% difference with regards to crispness. I put 1/4 tsp of mustard seed and 1/2 a Jalapeno in each jar also (these will get spicier the longer they are stored :) Like most here my water bath time is way shorter -- usually about 8 minutes for me :) ... 95% usually seal by the next morning (and I hear that lovely pop in about half of the jars within the first hour, even ! ) Any that do not seal by morning, go right in the Fridge as Refrigerator pickles, which are the only true way to get that Claussen crisp -- however this canned recipe with the short water bath are the crispiest I've ever had, next to refrigerator pickles!!
