The two largest glass canning jars..Ball and Mason are having some kind of war with each other so the jars are in short supply. They are almost unobtainable due to this ...that and everybody appears to be Baking, Canning, Fermenting or Brewing so all that equipment is in short supply. So is yeast and flour all because of this never ending Corona virus. As far as I am concerned I tried the Sourdough Bread baking and the Canning and the Fermenting Rout and now after spending my entire pension online to Amazon for Wine Brewing equipment, I am sure I will find a few bottles of wine will be much more satisfying than chewing on a slice of burnt Sourdough bread.

We do very little canning anymore. A dozen or so each pickles, relish, and a few jalapenos. Other than that, we dehydrate. I will never can tomatoes again. Dried are not only tastier, they take up much less space, have more vitamins, and are good for salads or cooked dishes. We freeze sweet peppers in slices.

We still use canning jars to store the dried goods. But we can reuse the lids quite a few times if we are careful when we remove them (they are vacuum sealed). We put up 28 quarts of tomatoes which would have probably been 100 quarts or more had we canned them. I like to smoke jalapenos and sweet peppers, then dehydrate, and grind. The sweet peppers are like bacon bits and the jalapenos are a nice chipolte spice.
Sounds interesting, I will have to add to my investigate list.

the box in tomato season came from Walmart, however it was necessary to get lids and bands as a set. They are there (Ball) but maybe at the fourth store.
That is what I am missing right now, the lid/seals.
This is an interesting year, the replacement plane Jane white stove should be in mid November, a two month wait.

I also have smoked the jalapenos and ground them up for the "Pulled pork" rub. Just cut the jalapenos in half the long way and smoked them(seeds and all). Don't need much when they're that hot.
