Tonight was my 1st time pickling & I ran out of liquid on the last jar. I just left it like that so instead of the 1/2 inch headspace, I ended up with a couple inches. Is this going to be a problem?
I am trying to understand the difference between headspace & leaving air in there? I used the plastic tool to swipe around the inside to remove air bubbles but am feeling anxious about whether I got them all or not in general...not to mention this jar that wasn't filled all the way.
I would make sure that the tops of the pickles are covered, even if I just had to pour white vinegar over them to add a little extra. As long as the pickles are covered, you shouldnt have a problem.

Thx Adaline'sMama! The liquid pretty much just covers the pickles so I'll hope for the best :)
