Ball regular or wide mouth lids and bands
In order to can successfully, having the proper fitting mouth lids and bands is key! Regardless of which type of jar you use, you’ll need well fitting and appropriate lids and bands.
Every Ball lid and band comes equipped with the ability to seal in the freshness of the food.
It’s been said that you can use them over and over for years without having to buy replacements. But I’d like to caution you.
You can always save on jars, reusing them every year. Make sure to check for chips and cracks before you reuse an older jar.
And bands don’t really need to be replaced, unless you somehow bent yours or the vinegar from your pickles got on them and they are now rusty.
