Given that the Husband wasn't home, the Toddler is of no help when it comes to opening objects, and our jar opener broke, I was on my own in solving this problem.
I tried whacking the lid with the handle of a butter knife. No go. I tried whacking the bottom of the jar with the palm of my hand. Uh-no, still not budging.
Then, in an act of genius (at least I thought so), I used that little nubbin (what else do you call it??) that sticks out of a bottle opener and slid it between the lip of the lid and the jar. Gave it a little push - and - POP! Off came the lid.
So that's my tip - use the nubbin of a can opener to open stubborn jars! How do you open stubborn jars?
