Quick question re using a Foodsaver to seal WM mason jars

18 years ago


Am I correct in understanding that at least some brands of vacuum sealers permit sealing of wide mouth canning jars with the ordinary metal lid with rubber gasket that is used in conventional canning? (I realize vacuum sealing is not a substitute for processing or freezing.) But I always thought you had to use the vacuum sealers manufacturer's expensive (a couple of bucks a piece) cap for each jar. But I think I was reading that you can use regular mason jar lids (new ones of course).

And is my impression that vacuum-sealed frozen items suffer less freezer burn and other delterious freezing effects?

Thanks for your answers!
