   The following treatment results in a better product
   texture but must be carefully managed to avoid
   possible spoilage. Place jars in a canner filled half
   way with warm (120 degree to 140 degree F) water.
   Then, add hot water to a level 1 inch above jars. Heat
   the water enough to maintain 180 degree to 185 degree
   F water temperature for 30 minutes. Check with a candy
   or jelly thermometer to be certain that the water
   temperature is at least 180 degrees F during the
   entire 30 minutes. Temperatures higher than 185
   degrees F may cause unnecessary softening of pickles.
   Caution: Use only when recipe indicates.
