Sharon, I would like more information on the reusable lids. Do you buy the rubber seal every year? I want to try them but really scared. I don't want to lose my food. Thank you. Yes I have checked their site but want to hear it from someone.
I do use Tattler lids and I do like them. The rubber seal is estimated to last about 10 uses. So if you use the seal once a year that is 10years. Many of my seals get used more than once a year. I store them and just grab them when I need them so it would be really difficult to keep track of just how many uses I've gotten out of each.
There is a learning curve to using them. Some adapt quickly and easily, some seem to have more trouble.
The most common mistake I see is tightening down the rings too tight. They have pretty good instruction on their website.
They do have a sample pack with just a couple of lids that you can order if you want to try it out without investing too much.
Here is a link to a review I've written.
I hope that helps you make your decision.

Sharon, I don't usually can only one batch at a time so I have time between the processing of one batch and the next. In that time, my jars get too cool.

After a busy day yesterday at our weekly homeschool co-op. I opened a jar of split pea soup last night for supper. Made some garlic bread toast to go with it.... ahhhh love a quick easy supper.
To can split pea soup just make your soup ... but don't mash up the peas. Can it chunky. Recipe I used is included in my Simply Soups e-book.

Lacy asks: I am canning black bean and corn salsa. I cook the salsa on the stove, sterilize the jars. I take a can of black beans and rinse. I use thawed frozen corn. Put in jar and put the hot salsa in as well. I put in water bath for 15 min.
The first batch I made seemed fizzy and extra sour so of course we didn't eat it.
Should I have cooked the corn and black beans with the salsa or was it okay how I did it? Just trying to figure out what went wrong. The jars seemedlike they were properly sealed.
The problem with a recipe like this is you don't know what the acidity levels are of your salsa. It must have enough acidity to be safe to preserve on the shelf.
With the ingredients you listed I think you are better off just making it to store in the fridge and enjoy now (because it sounds amazing!) or you could try freezing it. But I would not recommend canning it.
