white jar lids?
    #4746009 - 10/02/05 07:22 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

anyone use the widemouth plastic white jar lids instead of the ...tin..brass...weird....metal ones?

It seems like they would be easier to use with tape, holes (i have a drillll), clean and also to birth!

Anyone out there use them? I know you can PC them without problems, but other than that.

Thanks!

Make the switch, you won't miss those metal P.O.S.'s. Not sure if it's necessary to do, but I put them in a pot of water on the stove at medium heat for a bit before drilling, to soften them up and prevent cracking.

Where I come from they don't make those KERR/BALL jars so I had to make do with foil and drinking glasses. I do have one jar that is plastic with a white lid though, which is colonizing pretty nicely, I don't think it's the same as your jar though. Are you taping the holes? I hear that restricting ventilation like that can slow colonization activity durastically and that the adhesive on the tape is bacteria heaven.

Where do you buy your jars from?

OOOHhhh yeaaaaa. I havn't experimented or even looked into that one yet. Thanks!

As per your question Foley, canning jars are just...everywhere. Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target, some major grocery stores, and I believe even Lowes and such. If anything, you can get them online, but can be expensive shipping.

I think he's trying to say that he's not near any of those stores and home canning supplies are hard to come by in his country

of course I'm usualy wrong

Whats that red button on the top of your lids? I bought some lids but I'm unshure of how to ventilate the jars. I don't want to start drill them and mess them up.

the button is a septa, a self healing injection port, you can get them from vacutainers



to vent it you can silicone a piece of tubing in another hole, with 2 pieces ou can use one as a vent and the other to suck up solution

or you can just put silicon for a self healing port.. using some for the first time this round.. so far so good.. so much easier than tape, IMO.

I just thought of something. Do these white lids seal (given I dont have holes poked in them?) I do not want them to seal!

Any info?

No. While they are PC'able, they are not intended for actual food  canning, I do believe. Their intended use is for after you open something that has actually been canned. You replace the ring and lid with this to store your opened canned goods.

heres my take on the pros and cons of jar lids
the metal ones rust and become misshaped after a couple uses. pretty cheap to replace. the disk in the middle does a good job of keeping the tyvek dry for the most part.
the plastic ones dont rust and dont lose their shape, but all of the tyvek is exposed to the inside of the jar. i tried putting the metal disc from the other lids into the plastic to limit contact with the water and tyvek. this causes the lid to lose its shape in the PC.
all in all i like the metal ones better. just toss em when its time comes.
