The Parmesan cheese lid article was so popular I figured I would show you a similar tip for wide mouth jars. I present to you the mason jar salt lid tip.
The top of a 26 ounce salt container just happens to be the same size as a wide mouth mason jar.
The top and the bottom are formed, with the body being wound around them.
If you feel the container, you will feel a “lip”. If you carefully cut the top along this lip – you can press it down over the top of a wide mouth mason jar and screw the ring over it.
This isn’t as easy as some of the other lid tips I have shared with you, but it is a good way to store opened salt.
As I said in the video, I only use this mason jar salt lid for containers I have already opened – but it does make it easier to store salt without it getting moist and hardening.
I used this the other day after a snow storm – I used some stored salt in these containers to try to remove some stubborn ice spots since I took all my shovels to the land. I know that table salt is not the same as road salt, but the work similarly (just more expensively) – it worked though and I could get to work.
