    Some are full now.

    How did I do?

    You got screwed, bring them to me, and I will give you the ten dollars back.
    I am no expert, but used jars are fine, as long as you don't feel any nicks on the rim of the seal area.
    Those plastic holders you got, if you got five, are worth WAY more than the ten dollars you spent.

    Thanks, Joe, . . . will be a bunch more happy when those MT jars are all filled with something besides air.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    As short as they are, . . . a simple metal brace in the center will keep em from doing anything silly.

    I actually bought them, . . . laying on my desk, . . . have been for a couple months. I'll get em on before the season gets on us though.

    May God bless,

    Yall should try canning carp. Its very tasty and can make folks chunk rocks at Salmon Patties. A nice old black lady taught me how to make em a few decades ago. She started with fresh carp in the pressure cooker for 30 mins and twice through a meat grinder to get the bones down to size but canned works better or at least just as good.
