Reusing canning lids... In the fridge?
I know that reusing canning lids is a big no-no. But tonight I was making salsa (not to can) and used my canning jars to put it in. I put the lids on and after a while, they pinged! Now I know this is in no way safe for "canning" but it made me wonder if it would make things last longer in the fridge, since its sealed, but also refrigerated at a safe temperature. Anyone know? It would be nice if it worked that way, as I like to make small batches of salsa/jam without going through the trouble of canning it, but I can't make too much at a time because it won't keep long enough in the fridge.
