For those that have read my blog for a while, you'll know that I do quite a bit of canning. In the past few years I've become concerned about a few things. First the lids are not supposed to be reused. I know that many people still do reuse them, but I'm not very comfortable with it. Second, the lids have a coating that contains BPA. I'd really like to avoid that if at all possible.
Today I was reading a canning forum and saw a thread about some reusable lids. They're called Tattler reusable lids. They're made of plastic and have a separate rubber ring that is also reusable. Have any of you heard of these or used these? I still have tons of lids that I bought in bulk, but would be thrilled if there was an alternative. They wouldn't rust and destroy the seal either. Moisture wouldn't be such an issue. I'm going to have to think about these a bit more.
