Canning supplies on clearance at Big Y
FYI for all those in New England (? Not sure of territory). Walmart is starting to mark down their supplies (I got the last case of quilted jelly jars for $7 instead of $8.12), but not much of a reduction yet here. WDM lids still $2, pectin $2.50, "Elite" domes and bands $4.
Big Y, on the other hand, had no jars left but had packs of WDM lids for 65 cents/doz, RM lids 49 cents, WDM lids and bands $1.25, RM lids and bands $1, Ball N-S pectin 62 cents, 2 lb Ball pickling salt (*now* I find it!) 75 cents.
I bought 4 lb of salt - any ideas on how to keep it from clumping over the next 10-11 months? I have a Foodsaver but not the canning jar attachment (yet). Can I just wrap the unopened bag(s) in freezer wrap and seal it? Is Ziploc good enough? Tupperware? Or just original bag?
I spent $18 but I'm all set for next year!
