Reusable canning lids!

You may have heard Glenn Beck advertising these recently. I think they're great! I'd heard some people who had trouble with them. But I carefully followed the instructions & they worked great! Last time I canned chicken I did some with metal lids & some with these. I had 2 metal lids not seal, but all of these did.
If you do a lot of canning; these save money in the long run. But to me they have a more important benefit. I'm always of the mindset of what would I do if there were no longer grocery stores to buy things at. I would have lots of jars, & fresh fruit from my trees & meat from my rabbits; & no way to can them after I ran out of metal lids. So I'm working on gathering enough of these to use on all the jars I have.
Amazon has them if you want a smaller amount to try:

They're a bit cheaper though on the main website. www.reusablecanninglids.com

    This site has good instructions, in case you're worried.
