Another quick tip from the Los Angeles Master Food Preservers: you should store your canned goods with the screw bands off. Why?
- So you can clean underneath the band to prevent spoilage and bugs.
- The screw band can create a false seal.
- Leaving the screw bands on can cause corrosion.
The only time to have the screw bands on is if you are transporting the jars. Otherwise, take them off!
