In Response To: vacuum sealing or preserving BBQ sauce (vicki arnold)

Hi Vicki,

Without knowing the recipe or what type of jars, I'll assume that the ph is at 4.5 or below. If so, that's acid enough for a boiling water bath to seal them.

If the plastic lids still pose a problem, you can probably purchase metal lids on the web. There are many choices to be found using google.

If all else fails.... Buy some 8 oz. mason jars and use them to can.

Hope this helps

Joe
