Um...OK WTH??? We finished off jar #1 of pickles so I went to retrieve jar #2 of popped seal pickles from the mini fridge only to find that they were actually sealed. I couldn't break the seal with my fingers but the button on top was popped. Any thoughts folks? This is odd.

Sounds like it sealed, should be OK. It was a slow learner. You mean the top button was popped down, indented, right?

All the lids popped down originally. When I went to check them at the 3 day marker 3 of them had popped back up. Or so I thought. The first jar I brought up was definitely not sealed, the lid slid off with no effort. I put the other jars in the fridge and when I brought up this latest jar, the lid was stuck tight! I took it back down and brought up the 3rd jar. Again, lid slid off no effort. Weird. All three jars looked the same, but the 2nd jar was actually sealed even though the poppy thing was popped up not down.

Hm. If the poppy thing was up, I would still keep it in the fridge, even though it sealed.

BBB says not to use the glass ones anymore. They recommend the two piece vaccuum seal lids.

I read that. Still thinking I'm going to give it a go. I'll make sure my will is up to date.

Hope you like them. They're what I grew up with and frankly, no other pickle measures up.

So you don't process them at all, in a water bath canner? Just boil the water and salt and pour, that's it?
