WARNING**DO NOT USE WIDE MOUTH JARS**Checking the jars after 3 weeks, I found 5 WM Pints had unsealed! I think it's due to the wider lids. Will use reg.jars next time.** Made these when Sharon first posted the original recipe and they were PERFECT! Lost the recipe, came back and found it changed. Made them again the processed way and they were tasty but MUSHY! (Husband still loved them...yakkk) Checked back again to see everyone else with the same complaint, wanting the "original" recipe. Read all the reviews and tried again today, using the cold pack process. Using wide mouth PINT jars while majority are using Qts. Wonder that and if packing loose or tight is a factor in sealing? Also, came back from a trail ride yesterday with vines of grape leaves tied to my saddle. Will add them to but not sure just how many/what sizes leaves to put in jar. Tons of fresh dill at peak in the garden along with fresh cukes. Garlic will be minced & fresh ground pepper added. So off to slice and ice...

THE BEST but........all the wide mouth pint jars did not seal :( So I took the advice to fill a skillet with water, bring to a boil and place the jars in, up-side down so the water covered the metal parts and boiled for 5 minutes.
