[quote:tinygreen:MV8xNjEyNjkxXzI2NjQ2MjUyXzc5MUI0RDg=] [quote:suvalley:MV8xNjEyNjkxXzI2NjQ1OTE3X0Q3N0M1NUM=] I have heard about the lids failing also, although it has not been a problem for me. I do think that you need to heat them a bit longer in hot water than they say is necessary, and do not over tighten the bands if you can. The sealant ring is much thinner than in previous years, imo. And they are not as forgiving for any speck of anything on the jar itself, that's for sure. BTW the boxed lids have been no problem, only lost a couple on new cases that are using the silver lids. Did you notice that they are darn near sealed onto the new jars when they vacuum seal the case? I think that's the culprit myself. Your old jars will be fine, and attain a bluish cast to them as you reuse them year after year. I have some pretty old jars myself, with all sorts of patterns and whatnot on the outsides. By the way, there is an email coupon floating around for $1 off per case of canning jars, good to October 31st :) [/quote] excellent advise. we always put our lids in hot water before us start and wipe the top of the jar carefully. mom watches like a hawk. i haven't used the seals that come with new jars, but i image you are correct that the seal has been compromised from the git go. i love our old jars. we have some that are well over 100 yrs old that have been in our family. we don't use the for canning though. we have many jars. our entire family has canned for generations. i'm a noob at it, but i'm learning at a running pace. thanks for the coupon offer. people need to save money. :hf: [/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.
