Do you have a methiod of sealing glass jars e,g, homemade pickles in recycled glass jars?

That said, you can find some recipes for brined vegetables that do not involve a canning process. There is one recipe for gherkins, I know of, that involves washing the tiny cukes, covering them with salt for a couple hours, rinsing them, packing them into the jars with herbs, garlic, and onions; and then filling the jar with 5% concentrate vinegar and aging for six weeks before using. Refrigeration is not needed.
