Adding Grape Leaves to Pickle Jars - to make them Crisp?
While searching Craigslist I found a listing that mentioned adding two grape leaves to each jar when making your pickles ... to make the pickles crisp. That seemed odd, so I googled, and found more information saying the same thing. I even found it at the PickYourOwn.Org website. (If you haven't ever looked there, you might want to check the site out -- lots of information, recipes, and photos.)
Have any of you ever done that? Does it help? I'm curious.
