Tattler Canning lids
« on: October 24, 2011, 06:21:47 PM »
I tried something new this year...Tattler canning lids....they are supposed to be reusable...and last indefinitely if you don't knick or cut the rubber seal...

But they are treated slightly different than the regular disposable lid...you screw on the band, then loosen it 1/4 of an inch...before you can with them.

Well I was concerned that I would turn it too far, or not enough...so this is what I come up with for a solution.

Every jar has a seam on it.  I screw on the lid, then find the seam, then I take a marker and make a mark on the lid right above the seam.  Using the seam as a reference point, I then am able to loosen the lid just the right amount.

In the pic, I marked the seam on the jar just so you could see it....I don't actually mark the seam on the jar when I am canning.... I just mark the lid.

Amish:  Did you like these lids?  Have toyed with them but balked a bit at the price.  And, of course, you would have to school the other half not to dispose of the lids when the canned item is gone.   ;)

I water bathed some pickled beets...and they sealed...you can't "thump" the lid like you do regular canning lids....next venture is to pressure can with them....

if they are reusable, then I could afford the price...a little at a time.

Made the splurge and bought some.  Eager to experiment.  Amish, you made their use look exceptionally easy.

I will be saving mine for use after the SHTF. They work just fine, but ... They don't make that 'sucking' sound when you break the seal, so if I am not paying close attention I can't tell if the jar was sealed.

Hey, thanks for the tip Haverwilde.  Maybe, I should purchase a few more and, like you, save for that "rainy" day.

I am switching over to them just for the long term savings. I can a lot and throw away lids are not that much cheaper around here.
