ok, got a canning question. I am new to gardening and canning, so learning on the fly. I canned some jalapenos following recipe below. I omitted the pickling salt in the brine and just used the vinegar and water. Will these be ok to consume?

  • 1 1/2 pounds jalapeños peppers
  • 3 cups white vinegar (MUST be 5% acidity)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon pickling salt, optional
  • Ball® Pickle Crisp or Mrs. Wages Xtra Crunch, optional

Call me a paranoid wimp but I will NEVER stray from the tested and approved canning recipe. I trust the USDA canning / preserving guide and the guides published by Ball Jar.

I'd say if these jars have not been refrigerated since you packed them they are not OK.

As a quick point of reference to my statement. When just cooking my wife says I never actually follow a recipe.

WHEN CANNING FOLLOW THE RECIPE TO THE LETTER.

You'll be just fine as long as your methods during the process were sanitary. Its easy to spot a spoiled jar.

Make sure you follow all sanitary steps in the canning process skipping none.
