I Can’t Open My Pickle Jar!!

So, currently I’m having the hardest time trying to open up our new jar of pickles. I was just about
to make fried pickles (I’ll post the recipe up for you guys sometime) – the oil was hot and I had the
breading all ready to go! I spent a good 15 minutes fighting with the jar and contemplated knocking
on all my neighbor’s doors to see if anyone else in this building doesn’t work during the day. I still
have an unopened jar, so I decided to check online to see if there were any tricks out there that I
hadn’t tried yet.

Here are a few of those!

The Rubber Band Method

-You put the rubber band around the outside of the lid, and it’s supposed to give you enough
traction to open the jar.

The Rubber Dish Gloves

-Put these on and open the jar. Simple as that.

The Slammer

-Take the pickle jar, turn it upside down, and slam the lid flat down onto a flat surface.
This should break the seal and make it easier to open.

Hot Water Method

-Run the lid under hot water for a little bit, dry it off, and use the towel to help you open
it. Be careful not to burn your hands.

Now, I’m off to try these!

  2. For anyone wondering–the Hot Water Method was the winner! I just ran it under the hot water for maybe a minute and it came right off without much effort!
