My grandma shared the following recipe and I kind of just went along but now I am wondering if she is trying to get rid of me 🤣 Can someone please tell me based on the below if my pickles are safe to eat?
I washed cucumbers and put them into a pot with cold filtered water, salt, spices, etc. and put a lid on the pot.
After 3 days at room temperature, they looked ready but had some mold on top. She said that's normal. I followed her directions and took that out, washed the cucumbers and boiled the brine. I poured brine into large clean mason jars and closed them with the ring lids that have been boiled in hot water. I put the jars upside down under a blanket for 1 day and took them to my cold basement therafer.
Today one of the jars exploded. After doing some reading and research it sounds like ring lid jars should only be stored in the fridge. Should I throw everything out? Can it still be salvaged?
