I’ll bet they did it with relish!
There’s sweet, there’s sour, and then there’s a Kosher….
It’s a real dilly of a picture. but it’s not kosher, – somebody’s photoshopped Tim’s gerkin!
Reminds me when my Dad would act like he couldn’t open a jar and then ask me to try.
I guess they got so old that it takes the two of them to open a pickle jar. It’s as a good as reason as any for staying together. :)
Was Dill from Cul-de-sac in it?
Easy-peasey to open a pickle (or any other) canning jar. Find an area on a countertop that is well-supported, like the corner. Turn the jar upside down and palm the bottom. Slam the jar top down flat on the countertop. Flip the jar back upright and the top will open easily.
The impact momentarily compresses the thin plastic seal against the rim of the jar, breaking the seal loose and making the top slightly looser.
CAUTION: Never ever rap on the metal lid with a knife or the handle of kitchen shears. I don’t care how your mother did it or what she told you. Doing so can chip off bits of glass into the jar contents. Ingesting those really is not very good for you.
