Although there are many vacuum storage containers available, this will mainly apply to bags. It will be quite impossible to introduce a vacuum into a jar on its own, without quite a bit of chemical knowledge.

With a bag, however... You can simply squeeze out the extra air, or if you do have a vacuum sealer, then you can use this option.
