If I were making them for the first time you could be darn sure all directions were followed to a t, so that I know what I am SUPPOSED to be doing.
I think the assumption is that first timers might not realize the importance of following each step exactly. They might ready that the jars need to be boiled for 15 minutes and decide that 10 is good enough because they do not understand why each step in needed.

I make pickled cucumbers during summer/ autumn, when I can get cucumbers which grew out in the field and not in green-houses.

I know from experience that the quality of the cucumbers is a very important factor for successful pickling.

Also I always add 1 Tsp salt for 1 cup water. If this thing is not done correctly, the pickles will not become tasty and crispy
