Canning water idea question

12932 Views 38 Replies 29 Participants Last post by  John Galt 1
Several home canners I watch on youtube suggest adding filler jars if you don't have a full batch to keep the movement to a minimum. I had the idea to fill the extra quart jar with tap water with plenty of chlorine already, added a lid and ring and canned it too. I've seen canned water you can buy for 3 to 4 dollars a can that has a 30 year shelf life. My clean tap water, boiled for 90 minutes... is there any reason it won't last 30 years? Also it's jars I have extra at this point I could always use the water or the jar again for something else if needed? Thoughts?

If you are going to store empty Jars anyway might as well put water in them I guess. I suppose if you aren't heating up the lids, they can be used to can something else later? I really don't know though.
