Mason Jar Window Treatment

    Marg - did you ever find the wired twine??? Also, one more reason for removing the "rings" once the lids have sealed is you can use the same rings on the next batch if you're canning but also occasionally the rings can get a little rusty and then

    no Susan, I got so caught up in ACMoore and Michaels that I didn't have the energy to go over to Jo-Anns :S probaby a good thing though because since then I've decided that I wouldn't use the quart size. I've also thought of a couple more good things
