Default tins...

a question for those of you who buy tins. I was recently gifted a tin of Dunhill Flake, after opening it does not seal back down to where it originally was. what is the best way to prevent it from drying out? Thanks

Mason jars or some kind of jar with an air proof seal. Or, can just keep in a zip-lock and do some re-humidifying every few months.

If you have a Food Saver Vacuum Sealer Unit, they work perfectly, for sealing up the original tin.
