A piece of horseradish in a jar will keep the pickles crisp and adds to the flavour. Dill Pickles are much better when left for at least 6 months before chilling, opening and eating. According to the Ball Blue Book of Canning you should water bath process for 10 minutes which is what I have done for years. Is 5 minutes adequate and safe for proper sealing? Shanti/Mary-Anne
