do you need to add pickle crisp to this recipe or will they stay crisp?

I haven't tried it yet. I just wanted to say to the person who asked what you do with the oil you divide it among the jars just like it says in the recipe

This recipe is very special to me- We used this recipe the first time my husband and I ever canned anything- EASY and nothing compares or come close to how good these taste! Everyone thought we were canning pros! PERFECTION! We sat by the pool and ate these right out of the jar!

Hi Broberts, the oil gets distributed among the jars. It's listed in the last sentence of the first step.
