How do you feel about the sliding scale of canning transgressions? I have gotten myself kicked out of a group on facebook about canning by the book for suggesting that we tone down the hysteria about someone reusing commercial pickle jars for new pickles. Her picture was about 3/4 ball jars and 1/4 reused jars. While the usda doesn't recommend reusing the jars and lids my thought was the downside might be the seal would fail and she would lose the contents of that jar. Now I had that happen recently with a regulation ball lid on some tomato sauce so that is always a possibility. Anyway, I didn't think it warranted the same level of concern as say, water bath canning the green beans, oven canning or some of the other crazy things people do. Am I off base? Otherwise I think I'm better off not seeing those posts anyway.
