Q. When should lids with screw bands be tightened on the jar

Postby Shadowgirlau » Fri Jun 06, 2008 10:03 am

A. Before placing filled jars in the boiling water bath canner or pressure-canner, tightly screw down screw bands and leave in this tightened position. Do not tighten screw bands after processing. Tightening after processing can result in breaking the seal.
