      Dee, Here are the guidelines for pickle canning. These can be kept in the fridge for quite awhile, but for long term storage you should process them.

      Do you process these pickles? I'm a little confused. The recipe says to seal but not sure if that means process or just cover with the lid and rim. Also, if you don't process these, how long will they keep? Thank you. Looking forward to making them.
