I don't have a vacuum packer. I should, but I keep hearing conflicting opions about which ones work and which don't.

We use the FoodSaver II, which we bought at a Service Merchandise. They are available in other stores too. It vacuum seals the special bags that come with it, and it has an attachment to seal things in wide mouth jars. We just recently ordered the attachment for smaller jars, too.

Most things we have sealed have stayed sealed...and the things that didn't were probably bad lids we were trying to re-use.

i just bought a 'kit' for vacuum sealing various size jars/containers. it was $80, plus you need a used ford air conditioning compressor ($35) for pulling a vacuum. it requires some building, but once completed, provides a powerful means of pulling high vacuum NON-ELECTRICALLY.

you can reach frank at ask him for his website to check out.

Hello, My name is Joyce Sullivan. We have been vacuum canning food for the past 9 years. So far we have sealed, and stored over 30 tons. Our goal is to establish several underground shelters in the mid-west. The primary use will be for, Children, the Elderly, the Disabled, and a soup kitchen for the general public. We have a very simple method for canning, which can be constructed for under $50. All you have to do to recieve the instructions is send a sase to the address listed below. A modest donation to help our program would be greatly appreciated. We are also in need of memembers to help finance, and staff these shelters. For more information write, email, or call Cross And Crescent Relief Agency, #81 Tyndall Lane, Maysville, NC. 28555. Tel.910-743-6550. Email, Thank you, and God Bless you in the dark days ahead, Joyce Sullivan.
