For a small order of only 48 lids/seals (24 each of wide mouth and regular mouth jars) it comes out to about $0.92 each. Obviously, the more you order, the better the price. Compare that to the metal canning lids you normally have to purchase every year at a price of about $0.20-.30 per lid every single year. When you factor in the quantity that is required for an average year of canning, it does not take much time before the Tattler lids have drastically decreased in their cost and essentially have paid for themselves.
This past weekend, I decided to play around with the lids/seals I ordered to see if I liked them and could follow the directions correctly. There is a little bit of a learning curve with these.
Like many other people, I buy a bag of potatoes and often have to throw out what is left because they get soft or sprouty. So, what the heck...I've got potatoes and new lids to play with.
Easy peasy...a partial ten pound bag of potatoes yielded 6 quarts of canned potatoes (complete with cute lids) ready to open up and transform into mashed potatoes or get thrown into soups or stews with no waste. Seems like a good idea to me!
Consider this a post about being a Tattler teller. ***NO, I am not being compensated in any way, shape, or form (they have no clue who I am)...I just like these suckers and sharing nifty cool things is the nice thing to do!
