Why are canning lids so hard to find?
Those of you who can fruits and vegetables may have noticed a short supply of jars and lids. Its a shortage that is being chalked up, in part, to the COVID-19 pandemic. The lids have a disc that sits on the mouth of the jar with a ring that screws on around it, but after one use, the seal around the disc breaks down.
