Do you refrigerate them or can they stand at room temperature without setting the bottles in boiling water?

I have been making these pickles all my life. this is the basic recipe and it works great if you follow it. you can also add 2 garlic cloves to the water cut in half or thirds. it add a nice flavor to the pickles.this same recipe can be used to make pickled cornflower. cut up into bite size sections and follow the same method as for the turnips..GREAT FOR MAZZA SIDE DISHES,

very tasty. I finally found a recipe. Am I supposed to refrigerate these?

I'm a little confused. The recipe calls for celery and a hot pepper in the ingredients list but doesn't mention them at all in the directions. Are these added in step 4 along with the water and vinegar?

This is the only legitimate turnip recipe for me. Basically I don't like turnips, but these pickled turnips have an absolutely different and better taste.

I love homemade pickles, so I tried these pickled turnips. I pickled them for 1 more day, since I love well done pickles, and I didn't regret that
