    I’m new to canning so I was wondering how long these will last and do they have to stay refridgerated?

      I have always kept mine in the fridge and have had them for many months in the fridge unopened and 6 months or so opened in the fridge. You can kind of judge by how long do you normally keep an opened jar of dill pickles in the fridge, you can do these the same. I really keep them a long time because the boiling and the vinegar kills most everything.

    How many cucumbers and what kind of hot pepper. This is not clear to a non pickle maker. Thanks. Tommie

      Tommie pickle recipes usually aren’t too exact because the cucumber sizes vary so much. Usually the recipe calls for how ever many cucumbers you can fit into the jar size the recipe is calling for that is why our recipe says 4-5 cucumbers. Not too exact on hot peppers either but I use the little red dried ones and sorry I’m not sure what they are called. When these and so many of the pickling recipes came into being there were only one- two types of peppers available along with so many other ingredients so most of them weren’t specific.

      Tawra doesn’t like hot things at all but she seems to eat these with no problem and doesn’t consider them to hot at all but it shouldn’t hurt them to leave them out it too if you would like. You might stick a pepper in just one jar so you can see the difference in them.
