Question About Lids

I have a question concerning lids. I bought a few boxes of jars a few weeks ago and just left them in the back of my Tahoe (I wasn't ready to use them so laziness just took over). I live in South Louisiana where the temps are extremely high especially when my car sits in the parking lot all day at work in the hot poppin' sun. Do you think the lids may not seal properly because they got too hot? I'm trying to decide if I should just throw those and go buy some lids.



My mother's menu consisted of two choices - take it or leave it!

They should be fine...Lids are normally inside the ring, and upside down. Rings are not tight so I would use them...Your first caning will tell the tale.....

I think you will be fine, but for a definitive answer, call the customer service number on the box.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
