Icy have never canned and have no intention of doing so, seems like a lot of work.
But I can give you a great idea what to do with the pickles.
Cut them into, oh, one inch, three quarter of an inch chunks or so.
Wrap with a half a rasher of bacon or so(you need to just do the amount of bacon by feel here).
Secure with a toothpick.
Put in oven and bake until done (oh, 350, 375 or so and keep an eye on it, maybe ten minutes, until the bacon looks done and maybe a tad crispy).
And serve warm.
There is nothing better.
Good luck with the canning.
