How to seal Jam Jars or Curd Jars using Wax Circles or Strips

When you have potted your homemade jam/lemon curd you can use a wax circle to seal and preserve it. The wax circle should be placed directly on top of the jam whilst still hot to form a seal. You can then place the lid on and this will create a vacuum.

Tip: In the event you do not have wax circles, leave the jam or curd to cool fully before placing the lid on as this will prevent condensation occurring which may lead to mould.
