The easiest to get coconut oil is coconut 76...it melts at 76 degrees, usually stays hard in the winter and is more or less super soft/liquid in the summer.

I haven't tried this recipe, but if you want to use a liquid oil, you could probably add some palm stearic (stearic acid) which is a hard, kind of waxy flake that is basically the "hard" part from solid oils. Just melt together and when it cools it will harden up. It's used in thickening creams and lotions.

I would think adding a little beeswax would work, too, instead of the stearic acid... in case you can't find the other...

the basic recipe is:
a whole lot of cucumbers Smiley
1 quart white vinegar
3 quarts water
1/2 tsp. alum
1 cp pickling or kosher salt
seasoning (we use fresh dill weed, minced fresh garlic, and red pepper flakes <sparingly>)

you wash the jars/lids and let 'em air dry... keep lids in hot water... grandma's recipe says it will make 10 quart jars, mine made 9... i think i didn't have quite enough cucumbers... put the seasonings in the bottom...then you wash the cukes and pack the cucumbers in tightly... boil the water/vinegar/alum/salt and pour it over the cucumbers... wipe the rims, dry the lids, put the lids on, screw tightly, and process in boiling water for five minutes.

pull 'em out, wipe 'em dry... don't mess with the lids, for at least 12 hours. as the jars cool, they will become vacuum sealed... so if they're puffy with steam at first, it's ok... just as long as they suck back down when they've cooled.

you have to wait about 4-6 weeks to eat them. make sure nothings leaky and that the seal's not broken...

you thawed the spinach... did you squeze it out,or leave it a little soppy?

hot pickle... but my grandmother's recipe calls for alum which keeps them crunchy... hers always taste similar to claussen, but waaaaaaay better. hopefully mine will be close to hers:)
