I did the whole boiling process of canning the pickles and over night some did not seal but as soon as I placed them in the fridge they sealed. Do they need to stay in the fridge or can I put them in the basement with the others?
You have two choices for those jars that did not vacuum seal:
- Treat them as refrigerator pickles, and eat them in the next several weeks.
- Within 24 hours of the first processing, process them again completely (using clean, new lids and having cleaned the jar mouths)
