There is a recipie for a casserole that my husband really enjoys. Last grocery trip I made sure I had all of the ingredients and because he's had a trying week at work I thought tonight he would appreciate some comfort food. As I began to prepare the casserole I remembered a problem I have encountered before with this meal. The sauerkraut jar! The size of the lid makes it difficult for me to remove when it is sealed tight. Often I'll get my husband to open it before he leaves for work. Had I remembered in time this could have been done, but no...I forgot. Now I stared at the jar. Several attempts had been unsuccessful. What to do? Eureka! Let's try rubber gloves! That worked like a charm! Personally I have an aversion to rubber gloves...but today....they are my new favourite kitchen helper. Supper is in the oven and will be ready when hubby gets home!

The large lids have evaded almost everything I've tried in the past. A few years ago we resorted to picking a hole through the lid...then it came off easily...but the recipe only uses half the jar...so then I had to find another container to store the rest of the jar. This was surprisingly easy. The lid is simply to big for me to get a good grip.
