Canning Q & A

Can't find canning lids (flats) anywhere! What can I do?

First don't be tempted to reuse lids that have already been processed. It is safe to use lids one time only. Lids will last about 5 years so be cautious when obraining lids from friends and family that have been in storage. 

This year you may consider freezing as an alternate method of food preservation. Find more information and several helpful links in thei Live Healthy Live Well blog .

Remember you can contact your local OSU Extension office if you have food preservation questions.
