How water bath for pickles

glutton | Nov 1, 2006 03:54 PM

I would like to make some pickles and then can them for the long haul. I know I need to run them in a hot water bath for 10-15 minutes to ensure that I get a good vacuum seal. However, I do not know if a canning pot is necessary to do this or if I can simply put a wire rack on the bottom of a big pot that I already have and then put the lid on it. What does a canning kettle/pot get me that I am not getting with a wire rack on the bottom of my big, heavy duty pot?
