Over this past weekend, we tested out the Tattler Reusable Canning Lids for the first time while making our peach jam. The worked like a charm.
You start out placing the rubber rings and plastic lids in scalding water, just like you would if you were using the traditional metal lids.
Put the lid and the rubber gasket together and place on top of the jar. Then screw on the ring the same way you would with the metal lids.
Process as your normally would and then you’re done. I must say, it is hard to tell by looking whether they are set or not. With the metal lids, you can usually glance at them and determine quickly if one of the seals failed. The Tattler lids are thicker and more rigid. I had to take the rings off to tell if I had a good seal. All were good!
