Made a big batch of pickles from an untested recipe that copies sweet hot pickles.
After I was done I didn't like the ratio of vinegar to water .(4 cups vinegar to 8 cups water) the recipe called for water bath processing.
Made these 2 days ago.
Now I am worried not enough acid in the brine. Can I do a 'better safe than sorry' and make a more acidic brine, and redo this batch with the new brine in a new water bath?
Thanks so much to any smart canners that will have mercy on a beginner. I made lots of these to give as gifts. I'd rather not give the gift of Botulism for Christmas to my entire family.
