How do I vacuum seal dried food in jars?
I have seen many mentions of vacuum sealing dried food in jars, especially from grainlady, but I have NO idea how to do this.
Do I need a special device?
Do I need special lids?
Do I use vacuum sealer bags?
Can I use the Sous Vide sealer I got in a special deal with my Sous Vide Supreme?
I feel there is something obvious here that I just can't see/don't know anything about.
The only way I can think to do this is this:
- put a sealable bag in a mason jar,
- pour in the dried food,
- pull the top of the bag out of the jar,
- vacuum seal it,
- stick the sealed bag back into the jar
- put the lid on the jar.
I KNOW there are better ways.
Please explain how you do it.
