Cloudy water in pickles

Hi everyone !!

I'm new to canning and made some dills. But the water clouded up and my garlic turned bluish green. YIKES Someone said it was fine it happen to them too. But I wanted to check with a few others before trying them.I did miss the part on not using metal pan so I was thinking that might be my problem. Any ideas out there ???? I don't want death by dill pickle ....LOL

LOL you must use canning salt.
I just checked my Ball Blue Book and it said that it was:
1 food spoilage
2 minerals in water
3 fillers in table salt

I would say like Jane said. Most uaually it is food spoilage when mine clouds up. Occasionally mine will cloud up & I think it is the minerals in the water. I always use canning salt. The local Amish women never use canning salt & never have any problems though. But, I always use it, just in case. I will read the article Penny.
