    Fill jars and screw on caps. That's it.

    I bottle thousands of lbs of honey each year which are sold directly to stores. I don't know what you are doing w/ your jars that your honey leaks from them. I don't seal my jars, neither does Dutch Gold, and I can stand my jars on their lids and not have any leaks. Not that I do that. So I don't know what to suggest you do differently.

    How do you seal them from the outside?

    My Mom used to put up strawberry jam sealed w/ a layer of wax and then a screwed on cap, Mason Jars. Is that what you are looking for?

    I don't have that much leaking, but I wanted to add extra sealing from the inside, you know those self sealing seals ... now a days the people are so picky, that is why I am giving them a high-End Product and also I am always working to add more safety to my jars, thank you so much for your reply.

    If you would use standard honey jars w/ Plasticell caps that should take care of it. That's what the big guys use. You could also use the heat shrink plastic tamper proof collars. I don't, but some folks do.

    Mason jar with a snap lid, use a vacuum pump to pull a seal on it? Oops.. I see we're talking plastic containers. Sorry!
