Hello Craftster, it's been a while.

Last night, I made my first ever batch of pickles. I'm really stoked about it, but I looked at them this morning to realize that some of the jars have a rogue pickle sitting above the top of the brine. Some of the pickles are still floating around a little, and will eventually settle, but is this a big deal? Am I being really obsessive compulsive? Or, am I going to give all of my loved ones botulism?

EDIT: I guess I should add that I used the cold or raw pack method, not a recipe where you ferment them.

And thanks for your help in advance!

No this won't hurt as long as you water bathed them for the proper amount of time and the jars sealed.  But if you feel funny about eating it when you open the jar, fish the offender out and throw it away. which is something I also do. And congrats on your first pickle experience.  There is nothing better than eating something you've canned yourself.

As starwatcher said, as long as the jars sealed properly and you ran them through the water bath the right amount of time, the pickles are fine. Floatie pickles are fine. Don't bother throwing out the floatie pickle - send it to me. Cheesy

Thanks guys! I feel a lot better now. I can't believe how long I have to wait to eat them, though.
