Vacuum sealing in jars just takes an attachment for a Foodsaver. They come in regular and wide mouth. Put on lid and attachment. Run cycle. Remove attachment and apply ring firmly. I use add an oxygen absorber for good measure.

Even vacuum sealed, herbal teas are best used within a year. Herbs loose flavor over time no matter what you do in my experience.
Thanks for this. I will have to search and see what I can find for our Foodsaver. This will be a good thing to have for pastas and beans too.

i don't think you really need to go through that kind of trouble for dried beans, once a jar is sealed up well enough they're not going to change that much from what air is in there.

pasta doesn't last long enough around here to worry about either. :) we buy quite a bit of it but Mom uses a lot of it in her cooking so the stock is rotated at least every other month or so.
