Your stash is beautiful! I've been wondering about the Wreck (sp?) lids. I love the glass tops on them

Cyndi- do you have any of the newer version of Tattler lids, i.e., the ones labeled as being 'EZ Seal'? If so, do you have a special technique you use with them? I ask because those are the type I have.
Yes, I have both the old and new EZ Seal.

Since the flats are thicker than normal metal lids, leave an additional 1/4" headspace than what the canning directions call for. Initial tightening of rings ... only until jar spins ...

Here's how I do it ... (best that I can describe) Put gasket on flat, place gasket & flat on jar, place ring on top. Put left index finger on top of flat lid & screw ring on just until ring 'catches' on threads, then release left index finger and then using just right index finger continue 'pulling' ring around until jar spins.

After pulling the jars out of the canner, let them sit for 5 minutes. Cover with a towel, using something to protect your hands, tighten the rings just finger tight.

I love Pomona Pectin. You can order directly from them (or find it on Amazon)

Thanks for the info, I clicked on the link that Mullers gave and 225grms is $56 AUD plus postage ($11.95) Total - $67.95. At that price they can keep it. I'll see if I might be able to find something similar made here.

Holy crow! That's almost twice what we pay here in the States.

It's a US based product, so with the Aussie dollar running around 78cents to the US dollar that gets added on, plus postage, then obviously profit.
I've since found some here that I can go and purchase at a local store, very reasonably - $9 for 133grms, it pays to shop around.

We are transplants from Southern CA and have been out here for about 6 years - fully embracing the New England life style. Wonderful that you were able to give her grandmother a trip back. It is beautiful here.

Don't know if you can do added juice, but there is a pectin called Pomona Pectin that has several recipes with apple juice or white grape juice -
