There may be no greater joy for the home canner than to produce a batch of perfectly crunchy pickles. These pickles get pride of place on the plate, and are gifted only to those sure to appreciate their glory. On the flipside, you have the slightly limp, the subpar; these are the pickles that gather dust in the cupboard, only to be eaten in times of need – perhaps during an ice storm or blackout.
