Just "pop" the lid and put the FoodSaver attachment to it again.

Same way originally vac sealed using the FoodSaver accessory port hose and
dome lid attachment (they come in standard and wide mouth).

thanks Dave, Eddie and Mike. I didn't know those things existed.
It's a lot simplier than flooding all the cans with CO2.

Where do you find 1.5 Pint Canning Jars?!!

7) From: george
I have two of these, one in kitchen and one in coffee 
area down stairs.  They work great drawing a good vacuum 
and they don't take up much space and don't need an 
outlet..http://www.pump-n-seal.com/George   aka MadHemi Roaster

When you vac seal a jar, do you use a "standard" lid, or do you need a
special lid that you buy from the vac seal mfr?
Thanks,
Brian

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
Standard dome lid, which if seal broken carefully/gently can be used
hundreds of times. In other words, don't over rump breaking the dome lid
seal and bend the lid! The dome lids are vac'd on with special attachment(s)
which come in both standard and wide mouth sizes:http://www.foodsaver.com/ProductDetails.aspx?productid64

What miKe said and I use the back of a butter knife to open them by
inserting it between the closest portion of the the thread and lid, then use
it like a lever to pry.  Lid comes off unscathed.

I had this problem periodically until I figured out that the shape of one of
the jars was irregular.  Both mating surfaces must be clean.  Does this
happen with all canning jar / lid combinations that you try?
