These pickles are easy to make since no canning is required, you can can a batch in no time! Feel free to make the pickles your own by using all the spices suggested or leaving some out. Maybe you love garlic and want to add a few more cloves. You will notice the use of oak, grape horseradish leaves or black tea bags. They contain tannins which help the pickles retain their crispness. The use of them isn’t necessary but strongly suggested. This recipe makes 1-quart canning jar. If you are a huge pickle fan you may want to double or quadruple it.
