For those of you that can, I have a question. When do you throw away the rings that come with the jars and lids? My mom says they rings should come off after the water bath and jars have cooled, and thrown away when they start to look rough. I've never heard/read it makes a difference in the outcome of what is canned. Any thoughts?
