I was doubtful that something so simple and easy could be very good.They are fantastic! I used smaller pickles that Kroger packages as they are all close to the same size and fit the jar perfectly to leave the airspace with the pickles covered and contained by the jar neck for the first 4 days.5 packages are perfect for 3 large mason jars.
