I will shortly have a glut of soft fruit and want to make some jam, that's the easy bit. The problem is, when we empty a glass jar it's washed, the lid goes in the recycling bin and the jars are stockpiled ready for the glass bank. Fortunately, due to lockdown we haven't been going to the glass bank.
So, I have an adequate amount of jars......but no lids! Can I just put a greaseproof paper disk on the top of the jam and then fashion a paper covering held in place with a rubber band? I really don't want to have to buy new jars when I have loads for recycling.
Many thanks in advance for any constructive help GNetters!
