If a recipe calls for rice wine vinegar then that the the acidity level you need for that particular recipe.

Cut down on vinegar, store the canes in refrigerator, you'll be fine.

I make my own garlic pickles and pickled tomatoes. I do not use hot water, or pressure canner, no vinegar either, but I do have a spear refrigerator in the basement, where I store both of them. I still have tomatoes, pickles are gone unfortunately. Next year will make more. They are perfectly fine even now after almost 8 month.

What do you mean? Instead of vinegar?

I make dill pickles.

I add only garlic, fresh dill, salt, hot habanero peppers, just 1 or 2 instead of whole peppercorn, or if I do not have habanero peppers plain black peppercorns, some celery, couple other things. The recipe is pretty much the same for the tomatoes.
