Save lids from mayonnaise, mustard, and peanut butter jars to use for opened jars of home canned foods in the refrigerator. They don't rust, and this will leave your canning rings free for another canning project.

I have found that my mayo tops will no longer fit on my canning jars due to their having been shortened. Very frustrating since they were so good to reuse on my canning jars. :-(
My sister cans a lot! Just in case she has never thought of this great hint, I am going to pass it along to her. Thanks!
This is a fabulous idea!

Plastic Lids On Canning Jars
I use peanut butter lids on regular canning jars for everyday storage. They don't rust if used in the refrigerator, and keep food fresh on the counter. I use them for non-food storage as well; such as band-aids with ointment. I haven't found anything to use on the wide mouth jars yet, any suggestions?
