How do I make sun dills?
Many variations of "sun dills" have circulated in the last several years. They all call for sealing the jars and setting them in the sun "to process or cure". None of these procedures are safe. Setting sealed jars of pickles in the sun is not an adequate heat treatment as it will not destroy harmful spoilage organisms.
