Okay, this about the coolest trick I think I’ve ever found on the internet!!!
In the past I’ve only been able to seal wide mouth mason jars with my Food Saver using the jar attachment. I haven’t been able to do regular mouth jars because I don’t have that size attachment. Well, take a look at these pictures!
Yes! It does work! You can seal a mason jar without the jar attachment!
I put a lid and ring on a regular mouth jar, and then put it into the medium-sized Food Saver canister. I attached the canister hose, pressed the button marked canister and…. IT SEALED THE LID ON THE mason jar inside the canister!!!! Can you believe it?!?! I think this is such a neat trick. And from what I understand you can do the same with quart sized jars in the larger canister.
So if you want to vacuum seal mason jar, and you have the canister set, don’t waste your money on the mason jar attachments, just use your canisters. Oh, and this is also a great way to seal those jars of flour and other small particle items. The flour won’t gum up the hose this way. Usually I have to put a piece of wax paper on top of the flour, now I don’t have to waste the paper.
Let me know if you try this at home!

And for lack of justice there is waste.”
