Weekend Giveaway: Tattler Reusable Canning Lids

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winner, Karma! And a big thank you to all who entered.

Today’s weekend giveaway is from Simple Bites sponsor Tattler Canning Lids, who make reusable, BPA-free plastic canning lids.

Suitable for all types of home canning, Tattler lids are guaranteed to last a lifetime when using USDA approved canning practices.

Many people do not know that the flat metal lids that come in a box of jars are good for one batch of preserves and then should be discarded. We’re supposed to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, right? Sure, standard lids are recyclable, but with Tattler lids, I can reuse year after year AND they’re a recyclable product.

Plus, Tattler reusable canning lids can be used with all the same methods of food preservation that you would use a traditional lid such as a pressure canner, water bath, and pickling.

I learned recently that the standard flat metal canning lids contain Bisphenol-A. It was disheartening to think that in my efforts to remove BPA from my families food, my home canning projects were still tainted.

I use a combination of Tattler lids and regular lids for my canning projects (such as yesterday’s garlic-lemon pickles!). I make a lot of jam to swap with others or give as gifts and am not parting with my reusable canning lids, so the preserves with Tattler lids are for my own use and the others are to give away.

You can get connected with Tattler via their Facebook page and Twitter account, and be sure to enter the giveaway below.


**This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winner, Karma! Karma, you have been notified via email. **

Thanks to the generous folks at Tattler, one winner will receive two dozen of each size, regular and wide mouth, reusable lids and reusable rubber rings for a total of 48 Tattler reusable canning lids.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post and tell me what you want to can this fall. That’s it!

Giveaway ends tonight, Saturday, September 17 at 11:00 pm EST.

  1. Applesauce. And spiced pear butter. And one last batch of spiced beets.

  2. What a fabulous innovation! I”m looking forward to making gallons and gallons of applesauce and apple pie filling this year. I always want to do peaches, but I’m too busy when they’re in season!

  3. I don’t can yet, but have been making freezer jam for the first time (peach today!). I’m hoping to move on to canning next year. I do use canning jars for my jam, though.

  4. I am already done some salsa and pickles via the lacto-fermentation method. I have a huge stand-alone freezer I am filling also.

  5. Salsa!

  6. Oh my goodness, what do I NOT want to can this fall?!?! Definitely some salsa and jams!

  7. I have been growing French heirloom cornichons this summer, and along with my Royal Chantenay carrots and three colors of cauliflower, I am planning some drool-inducing gardeniara (the oily kind, for pizza, and a brined batch, to accompany pate). It’s my first garden!

  8. I’ve already made a few fruit jams, but I’m dying to use my jalapeños to make a fruit and pepper jam. I love spicy and sweet!

  9. I’m canning applesauce.

  10. My mom and I have already done some tomatoes, but I really want to make some of my own apple butter and pickled carrots.

  11. Wow, thanks to Tattler! I’m so excited to hear of reusable/BPA free lids!! I’ll have to put those on my Christmas list! I’ve got plans for canned pears, spiced pear sauce, applesauce (free from the tree at our bank!), and green tomato salsa. I’ve already got a few small batches of peach and grape jam, peach syrup, canned peaches, and salsa. And I’d love to learn how to can some soups for winter.

  12. Applesauce, hands down. Last year my dozen jars dwindled so quickly I thought we might have been robbed! 🙂

  13. I would love to can some tomato sauce.

  14. Mmm…apple butter.

  15. jam is the only thing I have ever made

  16. Would love to have these to finish the canning season!

  17. It is apple season up here in Maine, and so I am most looking forward to canning some apple butter. A great addition to my muffins in the winter!

  18. Heather Anderson says

    I am hoping that my tomatoes ripen enough to make more salsa. I also plan on doing applesauce. These rings look great!

  19. Thanks again for the great give-away! I just picked a huge basketful of Concord grapes from a neighbor’s yard (with her permission of course!), so I am thinking of what, jam-wise, to do what them tomorrow. I actually hate the flavor of Concord grapes personally haha, so these will all be Christmas presents for other people. 🙂

  20. I just learned that I can can apple sauce. Having parents who have a huge apple orchard, I’ll have as many apples as I can use.

  21. I just finished some peach salsa…then want to make some blackberry and cherry jams….then get into something with apples and pears. Yes, I am hooked…by that canning pot!

  22. Jeanna Hudson says

    I am looking forward to canning everything apple this fall- Apple sauces, jams and butters. Thanks for the giveaway! I’ve been wanting to try these lids.

  23. I definitely want to can some pickled garlic and pumpkin butter.

  24. I’m looking forward to canning sliced pears.

  25. I am doing strawberry jam and rhubarb strawberry. gifts for Christmas

  26. wow, those are so cool. I would love to try them out even if i don’t win.
    now if there was just a way to get back your jars when you give your canned goods away :)))

  27. Nicola Mahoney says

    These look awesome! I need to learn how to can just so I can do something with the thousands of cherry tomatoes coming out of our garden this year.

  28. ooops forgot part of my address

  29. Another batch of salsa, applesauce and more pear butter!

  30. Heather Moll says

    I’ve been canning up a storm here lately – peaches, tomatoes, pears, apricots, salsa and still want to get some applesauce done too. 🙂

  31. It’s not my fall canning but spring for me in Australia. In a few short months it will be mango season, and I’m dying to preserve some mango chutney!

  32. Gee, I was going to rattle off (brag) all the different things I canned this summer. Now, you’ve given me a different mind set….I will have to think that one over. Only apple something or other comes to mind. I don’t usually can in the fall. I just make myself hotter and can during the summer….

  33. My grandmother’s vegetable soup

  34. We just finished up a batch of fireweed jelly. Onto apple butter

  35. Pickled jalapeños!

  36. I am going to can apples this fall.

  37. bread and butter pickles, tomatoes, applesauce, pears in syrup, ketchup,salsa

  38. Just finished fig jam, hope to can some roasted red peppers and apple butter come Fall. Probably a few different types of chutney as well, love this season!!

  39. Lots of applesauce. And some more peach butter, as my peach tree is full of ripe peaches. 🙂

  40. Apples!

  41. Definitely tomatoes and salsa. Hopefully pepper jelly. Maybe some more chutney. I love canning!

  42. The rest of my tomatoes…and apples. :0)

  43. Peach Vanilla Jam and Peach Butter and Vanilla Pear Jam!

  44. Sue Klingseis says

    Our tomatoes are just coming on so I would do salsa, tomatoes, etc.

  45. I use my Mason jars on lacto-fermented pickles and ginger carrots. I also use the as water jars. This summer I made jam, but since that flopped I might try again with applesauce.

  46. I am going to can salsa and dilly carrots.

  47. Molly Ruhlman says

    Just picked nearly 50 pounds of apples today for apple sauce!

  48. I’m canning tomatoes, salsa, and pesto! YUM!!

  49. I want to can my own katsup!

  50. I love love LOVE these lids.

    I still have lots of applesauce to make this fall along with pickled cauliflower. And I’ll be able to get my hands on lots of wild cranberries, so I’ll have to come up with many projects to use them.
