For short term storage, yes it should work well.

Did you mean vacuum seal them and then put them in a mason jar?
I'm a bit confused.

The wide mouth jar sealer is great, but do not get the small mouth jar sealer. Those do not seem to work well for some reason. Here is a great trick though. It you want to seal a small mouth jar just put that jar in a canister large enough to hold it. Put the lid on the jar is if you were going to seal it. Put the top on the canister and seal the canister. Then once that is done open the canister. When you do that they small jar inside will seal itself.

HOw interesting, GB. There really isn't any reason you couldn't do this with a bag. No need for the canister or the FS that has that capability. Cool.

I don't follow Candocook. How would you seal a small mouth jar with a bag?

You said to put the small mouth jar in the canister and seal the canister, and then you could remove it and the small mouth jar would be sealed. Seal it using a bag and take it out of the bag. Maybe I didn't understand you correctly.

I don't think it would work with a bad. Even if it did, you would be using up your bags that way.

Not to mention it would be kind of difficult, if not impossible to put a jar in a bag standing up so that the contents did not spill out.

I'm going to give the idea of sealing a small mouth jar in a canister. It seem that it should work. I'll soon find out.
