This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winner, Laura!! A big thank you to all who participated. Stay tuned for my BIG birthday giveaway on Friday!
Today’s weekend giveaway is from Simple Bites sponsor Tattler Canning Lids, who make reusable, BPA-free plastic canning lids. A perfect way to wrap our canning series!
Suitable for all types of home canning, Tattler lids are guaranteed to last a lifetime when using USDA approved canning practices.
Many people do not know that the flat metal lids that come in a box of jars are good for one batch of preserves and then should be discarded. We’re supposed to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, right? Sure, standard lids are recyclable, but with Tattler lids, I use less, can reuse year after year AND they’re a recyclable product.
I learned last summer that the flat metal lids contain Bisphenol-A. It was disheartening to think that in my efforts to remove BPA from my families food, my home canning projects were still tainted. Not anymore.
Plus, Tattler reusable canning lids can be used with all the same methods of food preservation that you would use a traditional lid such as a pressure canner, water bath, and pickling.
I use a combination of Tattler lids and regular lids for my canning projects (such as yesterday’s Apricots in Honey Syrup!). I make a lot of jam to swap with others or give as gifts and am not parting with my reusable canning lids, so the preserves with Tattler lids are for my own use and the others are to give away.
