DIY Canning Jar Vacuum Sealer
This is a great project to do one night. Don’t spend a lot of money on a canning jar vacuum sealer when you can make one yourself for half the cost, maybe free if you already have the parts.
I found this video on YouTube that shows you how to make your own vacuum canning sealer and thought id spread the word. Making this is really easy to do and could help you out loads when you can your summer food for the winter or for food storage.
The top forms a tight seal on mason jars while the tubing removes air from the jar. The jar sealer works equally as well in packaging liquid foods, such as jams or chocolate sauces, as it does for dry goods, such as brown sugar or spices.
While vacuum packaging is not a substitute for traditional canning methods, it does keep food fresh three to five times longer than keeping it in a plastic food storage container in the refrigerator.
