Some people say it can’t be done. They say you can’t seal salad in a jar with a handheld vacuum device, which would mean you must use a more expensive full-size vacuum machine that takes up a fair amount of space in your kitchen.
IT’S NOT TRUE. Don’t believe it.
To convince the skeptics, I made a quick little video to show you how. This same method works with the FreshSaver by FoodSaver and the Reynolds Handi-Vac. Between the two, I prefer the Reynolds Handi-Vac because it seems a little easier, but they both work. I have not tried any other brands. Of course, you may prefer the regular, full-sized vacuum-pack machine because of its versatility, but the handheld is cheaper for those of you who want to dip your toes in the water before diving head first into the world of vacuum-packing.
Have you tried sealing quart jars with the wide-mouth attachment and a handheld device? I would love to hear about your experience.
