Nothing could be worse than in the middle of your recipe and then all of a sudden a jar of ingredients would not budge. No matter how you twist and turn it and how hard you try, you just can’t seem to open it. Fortunately, there are several ways on how to open a stubborn jar.
Here are steps on how to open a stubborn jar. When you follow these, even small or arthritic hands could open a jar more easily. Keep in mind that jars are under a vacuum and if you break it and allow air in, they would be easier to open. The first thing that you have to do is to look for something to grip a jar with. You could use a damp cloth or you could wear rubber gloves such as those that are used to wash dishes.
Place your palm on top of the lid and apply pressure and twist it around using your whole hand. Grip the lid firmly alternatively and apply force on the jar instead of on the lid. Always keep a firm grip because you want to avoid the contents spilling all over the table, on yourself or on the floor.
