Australian Jam Jars
    #1331901 - 02/24/03 03:25 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Righteo... now i know theres heaps of posts already about ppl using 1/2 pint jam jars and the like.... but what i was wondering is do ppl who use these jam jars use the lid that comes with them or do they use the aluminium foil on top of the jar idea?
These lids fit on fairly tight but are only very shallow.. ie they have only aprox 3mm of lid lip-space... so i'm thinking that they may shoot of in the sterilization procces... i'm thinking that they may need some masking tape to hold the lid on, they may also use the foil and the lid...
Thanks to all ppl who may have an idea on this topic... Riley :smile:

when you sterilize, u always need some sort of way for pressure inside the jar to get out.. thus, a hole in the lid.  So i wouldnt suggest using a jar that's air tight. or you could have exploding jars.  The aluminum foil on top of the lid is so that water doesnt drip through the hole in the lid and change the water content of yur substrate. read read read  :smirk:

Arggh... sorry ppl, i forgot to add that it's the jam jars where the jar is a 're-useable tumbler' (ie drinking glass) and the lid doesn't screw on it just sits on...
Oh... and i didn't mean 'shoot off', but just dislodge and allow steam into the jar while sterilization...

with a hole?

I use glasses with foil myself.  Picked up a good batch of perfect glasses from "Everything Her $2."  Fifty cents each, bargain :smile:
