How long pickles be processed before putting them into sterilized jars?

Rating: 100

Pickled products processed less than 10 minutes should be put into sterile jars. To sterilize the jars, boil 10 minutes completely covered in water. Remove and drain hot sterilized jars one by one as you are ready to fill them.
