Visitors tips Easy way to open a jar.

Submitted by Rusty

This is how I open all of my pickle jars, or any jar lid etc. Take a paring knife, and barely poke a hole in the lid. Just tip the knife a tiny bit to one side. You will hear the suction release as the air escapes.

Open the jar as usual. Put a piece of tape over the hole, on the top of the lid. This never fails to relieve the seal.

opemin a tight jar lid Comments By: Gloria on 2006-06-04
I tried this tip, but used an ice pick to poke a hole in the jar lid. I did put tape over the little hole. This is the one tip that worked after trying all the others. Thank you Rusty.
