I'd like to welcome the continued advertising of Tattler Reusable Canning Lids!!
I first found out about Tattler lids almost two years ago when I inquired if I could receive a box of lids in exchange for doing a review. They promptly sent two boxes (which I shared with a friend) and I tested these babies out. Well, I became an instant convert. In fact, I saved my pennies and ended up buying a lifetime supply of lids which, in my opinion, has been one of the best investments we've made to date.
You see, one of my biggest concerns when it comes to canning is running out of lids. Disposable canning lids are meant to be just that -- disposable. While I had a fair number of disposable lids stockpiled, the inexorable fact remained that eventually I would run out.
So what's a Prepper to do? What the world needed was canning lids that were reusable, by golly. And lo and behold, they exist!
The Tattler company has been around since the 1970s and has some of the best customer service I've ever found. Tattler lids take a little getting used to and have a slightly different technique than disposable lids, and because of that there were instances where I needed some guidance. A quick email to the Tattler folks and boom, I had my answers.
After I received my lifetime supply of lids, I deliberately put my disposable lids on a high and inconvenient shelf so I wouldn't be tempted to mindlessly reach for them. I wanted to master the Tattler lids, and how glad I am that I switched completely.
I simply cannot think of a better product for long-term food sustainability than reusable canning lids. And that is why I welcome the Tattler folks as a continued advertiser on this blog.
