Storing Pickles

Pickles made with low salt brines must be stored in a refrigerator in order to deactivate tissue softening enzymes, that may alter flavor, texture and color of the product. The product is usually consumed before any spoilage occurs. To prevent these problems in long storage, pickles should be processed in a boiling-water canner. Standard canning jars with self sealing lids are recommended.
