Low-Temperature Pasteurization for Pickles
how to can pickles sous-vide
immersion circulator (such as Anova Precision Cooker)
large pot or lexan tub
pickles, hot brine pack, lids and bands applied
Place jars in a suitably sized pot or tub filled half way with warm (120º to 140º F) water. Then, add hot water as required to a level 1 inch above jars.
Start the immersion circulator set to 180˚F. When that temperature is reached, start a timer for 30 minutes. Maintain 180º water temperature for that time.
After 30 minutes, remove jars and let stand undisturbed overnight.
When jars are completely cool, remove rings and check seals. The jars of pickles may be stored for up to a year.
NOTE: be sure that the temperature does not exceed 180˚ -- at 185˚ cucumbers will begin to soften, and the texture of the pickles will suffer.
