Reusable Canning Lids Review and Giveaway

Several months ago, as I was assessing what canning resources we might need for our garden harvest this year, I spent some time researching reusable canning lids. It always bothered me how wasteful the one-time-use lids are. Plus, I am concerned about them having BPA in the seal. While doing some searching, I came across Tattler Reusable Canning Jar Lids web site, which offers reusable canning lids that fit the common standard and wide mouth sized canning jars. I liked that they were reusable, and in the long run would save money. I also liked that these are a healthier alternative to traditional disposable lids.

I continued to read some reviews, but none quite convinced me to make the commitment to buy. And it is somewhat of an investment -- about $30 for 3 dozen regular canning lids with shipping to my address, or about 83 cents each. This is about 3 times the cost of disposable lids. I had concerns that they might be difficult to use or cause problems in the canning process. I vowed to do more research but not buy any for this year's harvest.

This morning, I read a review by another blogger about these reusable canning lids. My questions related to processing were answered, and the giveaway was a welcome bonus! I'm very excited to share her post with you. I hope that you read about this product (plus the rest of her great blog!) and I encourage you to enter the  giveaway! Note, the giveaway goes until July 14, 2011.

If you have experience with this product, I'd love to hear it. Finally, good luck to all!
