[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pelyWF0sz-M[/youtube] [/quote] Oh !im so pissed! I did the same thing as the lady and the Ball Lids SUCK! All the canning Ive done with them , my shit better not go bad!!! Good Find my friend on that video. [/quote] no shit. and i've been using them myself. i had 3 jars of beans not seal on the batch before last. now i'm wondering if it was the fucking lids. now i'm getting really pissed. i hadn't even connected my own dots. i'm a nit. so, can we take them back? do we start a viral campaign against ball lids? i'm email and call them at the very least. and i'll be checking every damned one of them from now on.:rant: [/quote] This is EXTREMELY interesting! I pretty much stopped using "KERR" lids (and jars, most of which have come from friends with stuff in them, so one would naturally wash them and plan to re-use them) because I always seemed to have about 1/3 to 1/2 of whatever I canned to not seal. But I ALWAYS depended on BALL jars and lids. So, what are we to do with the lids which don't "pop"? Can we take them back to the store? I doubt if they would take them back, and even if they did, the replacement box might be just as crappy! Lids are EXPENSIVE, and can't/shouldn't be used twice anyway (so one would consider them as a necessary cost of canning), but those lids in the video are BRAND NEW! What happened? Did they "outsource" their lid-making to CHINA for Pete's sake? THANK YOU, TinyGreen, for this WONDERFUL thread. :bump: :bump: , 5 stars, "Suggest Pin" and a GREENIE for you!! PS, your jars of preserved food look WONDERFUL!!!! [/quote]
last year i canned for the first time. wow, i was nervous.
this year, i'm doing better. i have been canning like mad.
if you'd like, tell us your how's and why's. learning to preserve food is one of the most important skills a person can learn.
if you have a picture of your preserved foods uploaded, let me know and i'll post it for you.
