Canning -- Pickled and Fermented Foods
Will pickles spoil if they are packed too tightly in a canning jar?
Do not wedge cucumbers into a jar too tightly. This leaves very little space for the pickling solution. Adequate solution is necessary for flavor and safety. Pickles packed too tightly may spoil or be less crisp that properly packed pickles.
