Pickling

ldj1002(8b)May 22, 2012

Made some pickles today and run out of jars. I used some jars that salsa came in. I always heard not safe to use them. I am going to refrigerate them and use now so not keeping long term. When jars were cooling the tops on the salsa jars popped down. Since they popped down wouldn't they keep just as good as the canning jars with new seals? Looks like when that top pops it has to have a seal.

Comments??

No sorry but they won't be. The seals will not hold.

You'll want to go post this on the Harvest forum here. It is the canning and preserving forum and is linked at the top of this forum's front page- right where is says "Related Forums".
