"RARE ROMAN NUMERAL 13 BLUE PINT BALL FRUIT JAR. I HAVE OVER 1,000 FRUIT JARS FROM 30+ YEARS OF COLLECTING AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN A ROMAN NUMERAL 13 FRUIT JAR IN ANY SIZE. THIS IS A PINT BALL JAR THAT MEASURES 5-1/8" TALL. THERE ARE NO CHIPS OR CRACKS BUT THERE IS A SMALL SAND PEBBLE IMPERFECTION ON THE LIP OF THE TOP RIM AS SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS. VERY NICE JAR WITH VARIOUS SIZE BUBBLES IN THE BLUE GLASS"

Kerr canning lids have had a reputation of being inexpensive and difficult to use. The lids had a tendency to not always provide a good seal.
Have you ever tried to opening a canning jar and it is very difficult to open? Once it is open, there is a residue that is left on the rim of the jar that makes it difficult to reuse the jar. You have to scrape all of the residue off, otherwise the jars will not seal correctly the next time you try to use them.
How do you know if you using Kerr canning lids? Flip the lid over and take a look at the color of the rubber seal that goes on the jar's rim. Kerr lids are grey. Ball and Golden Harvest lids are pink or red.
This isn't as big of a problem today since the Kerr canning and Ball canning companies were bought by the Jarden Home Brands company.
Canning has been and is a popular way of preserving the bounty of summer and fall harvest all year around. In troubled economic times, home canning makes even more sense. Growing and canning your own food cuts down your family's grocery bill. Not to mention you know that the food was grown organically and pesticide free.
The Kerr canning company is one of the longest standing canning supply manufacturing company still around today. Kerr introduced the revolutionary two piece canning lid system which consists of the lid with a rubber seal and a ring to clamp down the lid. This two part system made home canning much easier and safer as the lid was disposable. The glass jar and ring could be reused many more times.
They also published the Kerr canning recipes book for decades. Although the book is no longer in print, you can still find copies in used book stores and on the internet.
Before using any of the recipes, check the USDA's food safety web site for updated safe food handling guidelines.
The canning jars, lids and rings are still available today even though the original manufacturing plant in Sand Springs, Oklahoma has been closed down for a while. Now that Kerr is owned by Jarden Home Brands company, the quality of the Kerr canning lids has gotten much better.
