Can I reuse canning lids?

An effective seal is essential to preventing food spoilage and contamination, so it is recommended that you don’t reuse canning lids. However, other components, such as the glass jar and the screw bands, can be reused as long as they are in good condition.

How do I sterilize canning jar lids?

Sterilizing lids helps eliminate harmful bacteria and microorganisms that could ruin your results. 

Before sterilization, wash the lids and bands in hot, soapy water to remove any dirt or debris. 

Bring a pot of water to a gentle boil. Make sure there is enough water in the pot to cover the lids completely. Place the lids into the boiling water using a pair of tongs or a jar lifter. Let them boil for about 5 minutes.

After boiling, carefully remove the lids from the water and place them on a clean, dry towel. Avoid touching the inside of the lids to maintain their sterility.

Once the lids are sterilized and dried, you can proceed with assembling your canning jars and processing the food following the specific canning recipe for the type of food you're preserving.
