    George...when you use it in your pickles do you have a special recipe
    for it or just put some in each jar?......I haven't seen it in the store
    yet to read the label...thanks...Carol

    It's all explained in the directions Carol. A specific amount for each
    type of jar. I'm still using up the old stuff in the envelopes, 1.5
    teaspoons per quart, .75 teaspoons per pint jar. The new Pickle Crisp in
    the jars has a different measurement method.

    For sweet pickles to be crisp we used to use the lime method, takes a
    few days to make the pickles and you have to rinse and rinse with fresh
    water plus lime dust is not to be inhaled. The Pickle Crisp makes as
    good a pickle as lime, is easier to use, and is less hazardous to your
    health. Pickle is Calcium chloride, CaCl, and is food safe.

    Just use the Pickle Crisp in the jar of whatever you're pickling and it
    will be crisper than usual. The local Kroger store and Walmart both
    carry Pickle Crisp in our area.

    Don't forget to let them steep in the sealed jar for three weeks before
    trying them. At least that's what my instructions say.

    I'm just waiting for the cukes to produce more for me to harvest.
