Open a jam jar lid with boiling water

Submitted by val burns

If you are having trouble to open a new jar of jam? Pour boiling water over the lid and it will open easier.

Only use this method as a last resort as boiling water could break the glass of the jar and worse could burn you.

After having spent over half an hour trying to open my new jar of jam - with an impatient 6 year old waiting to finish making her Victoria Sponge - I decided to try and see if there were any tips online - sure enough after reading this tip, my jar was open after the kettle had boiled!!!
