Rated 4 out of 5 by Jackie90 from Helps with crispness, also imparts some saltiness I used to use alum but stopped due to it not being the safest option, and so for the past few years my pickles have been mush. Tried Pickle Crisp, and they're no longer mushy which is fantastic. I've never used pickling lime (too dangerous) so I can't compare it to that, but compared to alum or nothing at all this stuff is great. Only complaint I have is I would've appreciated a heads-up that this may add to the salty flavor. My pickles that contain Pickle Crisp are a bit too salty now as I did not know to cut down on the pickling salt. Otherwise I really like this product. I did wait over 2 weeks before opening my first jar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bubbie from Great stuff! This stuff is amazing. I used it for my kosher dill as well as my bread and butter pickles and both are crunchy and delicious. I add onions and red bell peppers to my B&B pickles and this keeps those crunchy as well. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Garden Girl from Good results I have used this for about three years but this year my pickled asparagus did not stay crisp. My daughter-in-law pointed out that my products was out of date. Does the pickle crisp lose its potency?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bobbie Fillet from Crisp Meixican Salad I add the granules to my barely boiled mixture of fresh jalapeno, carrots, onions, and garlic cloves after I scoop them in the jar with the juice. I think it keeps my veggies crispy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ironwater from Crunch! I used Pickle Crisp for the first time last year rather than hunting for grape leaves or alum. Put up 48 quarts of dills, all gherkins. Great results. The pickles are consistently crisp and fresh tasting. Glad I found it.
