That's an interesting way to can pickles. Does the oven seal the tops or do you still need to put them in a hot water bath? Also, can you give us a ballpark idea about how many cucumbers to use?

Can you tell me how long I need to wait before I can eat the pickles after I seal the jars tightly, or can I start to eat them? My mom had a recipe for making pickles. The recipe said after they were sealed they had to go into the dark for a few months, before we could eat them. We made them from my garden. and had alot of jars. We made a few batches of them. It didn't say like yours to put them in the oven. Please let me know. You can send the answer to me privately.
