    Pickle Crisp has no salt Bev, it's pure food grade calcium chloride. As
    a matter of fact most municipalities now use chemical grad calcium
    chloride versus salt to deice roads.

    Try getting your calcium chloride from a brew shop, it's used to clarify
    beers.

    It says on the jar 1/2 tsp per quart. I've used that measurement and it
    seems to be fine.

    That last one sounds right to me as it is now 1/8 tspn per pint
    according to the jar I bought recently. Using the PC in the old
    envelopes you would have been right. I still have four of the envelopes
    to use up so I will have to read the directions each time to keep from
    screwing up.

    Hi Bev
    I recently canned pickles using pickle crisp in a jar for the first time. You use 1/8 tsp. for a pint, and 1/4 tsp for a quart. No one in my area sold the stuff, so I had to ask for it to be ordered, but I'm told that most of the Meijer stores sell it in the canning section. I looked it up on a Ball canning site, and pickle crisp is just another name for calcium chloride.
    Hope this helps.
    ~Jean

    I am seeing it quite often now in small quantities near the jar lids,
    pectin, and other Ball products in the grocery stores. Our area is not
    prolific for canning supplies.
