Tartar Sauce II

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
I was relieved to find this recipe, after reading all of the others on this recipe site. (I didn't think you could make tartar sauce without capers and hard boiled eggs). This recipe is similar to our family recipe, with only a few easy additions. We use only Helmanns Real Mayonaise, and add the following "spice it up" ingredients: a little creole or dijon mustard and "Old Bay" seasoning. I prefer to rinse the "sweet" flavor from the pickle relish/just run it under faucet in a tea strainer, but be sure to press the water out.

Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
Thank you, Sharon, for giving readers the detailed process. I needed the information about how to pack the jars. I have been experimenting with ways to increase the crispness. I'm curious about the updated USDA requirement of the water bath. (My grandmother did not do that for pickles). The only additional tip I would add, and it may not be critical, is to run a plastic knife or spatula around the filled jar to remove air bubbles before the canning. (Only repeated instructions I've been given). Do we know if this is necessary?
