Refrigerator pickle recipes

Asked June 30, 2018, 6:59 AM EDT

Can "refrigerator " recipes be used for products I want to can instead? I have found recipes I prefer to use but wasn't sure if there was some reason why they may not work if canned.

Refrigerator pickles are not preserved in a manner that would offer shelf stability. They are not suitable for canning. You may find recipes suitable for canning here:
