is this ok?
    #3075389 - 08/31/04 09:33 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

instead of using jar lids in quart jars, would putting 2 coffee filters over the top then screwing on the ring be enough to keep out contams? It would let it breath very well..

i do have some tyvek, but just enough to cover the very tops of the jars; not enough to fold over like a coffee filter.  Thanks :smile:

No they will get wet and fall apart. I have used 5 coffee filters under the ring and a piece of foil over the top of the jar before. Just be careful it is easy to punch a hole thru the coffee filters after pcing. Don't set anything on top of jars.

This time of year every food store and hardware has new lids. :thumbup: Go get some and save yourself a problem :tongue2:

Cool send me some LOL

Hey a great tip..... Tyvek can be bought very cheaply at home depo. $48 dollars will buy enough to last a liftime.

It is called HOME WRAP or house wrap depends on who you ask.

they aren't envelopes... they are large like 12x18 inch things. and when opened up have a large surface area.... what am i doing wrong? I cut each one into 6 squares that fits nicely over the tops and have 1-2 inches hanging out from under the screw on lid...

also am i wrong to assume that it is ok to just use tyvek and no metal jar lid?

you're fine with yout cutting, you may want to trim a little excess off but it wont matter much, as for the lid insert, its best to use them over the tyvek as well as the ring, you'll loose too much moisture otherwise
