Pickling salt - necessary?

snackysmore | Sep 10, 2008 03:51 PM

I have made pickles before using pickling salt but this time I am not really in the vicinity of any places that sell it.

Does anyone know if I can make pickles with regular sea salt? I am sure there is a reason for it; all the recipes I have seen or used call for it but I am just wondering if I can substitute something else for pickling salt.
