A couple of weeks ago I put up a quart of Kosher style pickles by the canning method (hot water bath). The top of the jar is depressed downward indicating a partial vacuum within. This tells me that there is no fermentation going on; is there supposed to be? The recipe says that they will be ready in about 2 months. Maybe the Kosher style doesn't involve fermentation (?).
