Prepare your lids: Lids are for one-time use only. Wash lids in hot, soapy water. Rinse well. Set aside until ready for use. Use your lids: 1. Fill jars according to your recipe instructions. 2. Wipe any food from rims of jars. 3. Center new lids on jars. Apply bands and adjust until fit is fingertip tight. 4. Place filled jars into canner. Process according to your recipe instructions. Check the seals: After processing, allow jars to cool for 12 to 24 hours before checking seals. Ensure lids are sealed: Press center of lid. Lid should not flex up and down when pressed. Remove band and try to lift off lid. Lid is sealed if it cannot be easily removed. Store sealed jars in pantry for up to 1 year.
