I am always learning new things and trying new products when it comes to canning. Some ideas and products I keep and some I don't. This year after making apple chips in the dehydrator we put them in mason jars and put in oxygen absorbers to store them. I packed my chips in jars and added two small oxygen absorbers to each jar then put on lids and rings. Within an hour my lids were pinging. Indeed the jars were sealed. Without oxygen they should not mold and should store longer. So we have 16 quarts of a natural and nutritous snack. Nothing but fresh apples a spray of lemon juice, cinnamon and a little sugar. Great for the kids and adults alike. I am going to try this with my dried herbs as well. The cost was minimal and if it helps to reduce waste and spoilage, thus reducing work, I am all for it.
