Question: Can you reuse canning lids?


No. Canning lids are designed for one-time use only – anything more than that and the jars may not seal properly.

Tip: Hate to throw out your lids? Then, use them atop jars of freezer jam, homemade mixes, made-from-scratch salad dressings and other non-canned foods.
