Simple cubenis growing -- foil ????
    #4316336 - 06/20/05 10:04 AM (13 years, 5 days ago)

I am studying the technigue described and don't quite get the foil over the lids of the jar when sterilizing

"Carefully wipe clean the exposed inner wall of the jar and the rim. Fill to the top with clean dry vermiculite, screw on the lid and band tightly, and cover the lid with a large square of aluminum foil, to prevent water droplets from entering. Optionally, breathable tape such as cloth surgical tape, can be placed over the holes. Your jar is sealed and ready for sterilization."

Is the foil just squeezed on top of the lid before sterilizing-- is this right? I'ts put over the lids with the holes and put in the pressire cooker? Are there two parts to the lid-- ? I put the lid with the holes, then the foil, then screw on the band? What about plastic lids -- From what I remember about canning jars there are two pieces , but from the photo I can't tell -- could someone explain. thanks

The foil is wraped around top of the lid. There are two parts to the lid, put the lid and band on first, and then cover with foil.

the foil is going to keep any water from getting in the jar during pc'ing. just as frank said, lid, band, then foil.
good luck
