How to Buy Discounted Mason Jar Rings for Canning
A Brief History of Canning
Ball® Corporation, founded by the Ball brothers (Edmund, Frank, George, Lucius, and William) in the late 19th century initially started as a manufacturer of wooden-jacketed tin cans for the food industry. In 1883, the Ball brothers invented a metal canning lid with a sealing gasket, which made the canning process more reliable and efficient. This innovation greatly improved the preservation of food in cans.
Ball® Corporation's largest contribution to home canning was the development of the Ball® Mason Jar, which became widely popular for home canning and food preservation. These glass jars, introduced in 1884, featured a screw-on metal lid with a rubber seal, allowing people to preserve fruits, vegetables, and other foods at home safely and effectively. The Ball® Mason Jar revolutionized home canning and contributed to the widespread adoption of canning as a method for food preservation.
