    To open a tightly closed jam jar with ease... take the edge of a spoon and tap around the edge of the jar... this releases the air pressure and hey presto you look like youve been eating your spinach!... the jar will come open 1st time hurrah! Enjoy your 'sanwich' !!!Get one of those grips to help you

    They must be boiled (full rolling boil) for at least 10 minutes. Please get a Ball Blue Book. You really need to process them right so they are safe. Also, your liquid (brine/vinegar) should be near boiling when filling the jars.Have they cooled yet? Once they cool, you will hear the 'pop' of them sealing.. it is just a matter of being patient.

    Did you sanitize your jars? hot jar, hot liquid, and as it cools they should seal. good luck Oh I love pickles MMMMM.Try wax paper over the top before screwing the lid on.

    Go ahead and put the lid on the jar right away. This helps reduce any chance of contamination and the heat from the jam will help suck the lid down onto the jar and make a better seal.Put the lid on as soon as you can. I do it immediately, as soon as I have stopped pouring the jam into the jars. The longer it sits exposed to the air, the better the chance that contamination will get in. Also, if you are using mason-type jars, the seal needs to be warm if not hot to seal properly as you screw down the other part of the lid, and it's the contraction of the jam as it cools that pulls that lid as tight as it needs to be to exclude air.

    If its homemade i wouldnt find it wierd that the pop up tabs are upYou have to process the jars in a hot water bath in order for them to seal. Fill the jars up to the threaded area with the hot apple butter, then screw the caps on. Place the filled jars in a large pot, fill with water to 1" over the tops of the jars. Bring water to a boil, and boil for 15-20 minutes. Remove the jars, and place on a dish towel on the counter. As the jars cool, the buttons will 'pop' down and seal the lids.

    To keep air from ''spoiling'' the jam, fill the jars to the top. When they are cold put on the lids and then store the jars upside down. Any slight void will then be at the bottom of the jar, where air can't enter, so will keep much longer.I always do the drop test. It is more reliable than the wrinkle test... This is what you do; Put a wooden spoon in the boiling jam. Take it out and hold it still. Wait for the jam to run off the wooden spoon. The last drop should hang from the wooden spoon and not run off like water. When it does drop, it must make a long stringy drop much like syrup would. Now as for bottling; The jars should be sterile and so must the lids. The should be warm, and filled to the top so that there is almost no air pocket when sealed. Mine usually run over a bit when I place the lid on. That way it forms a vacuum when sealed as opposed to condensation.

    Try this, have another person help you. You turn the lid one way, the other person turns the jar the other way, the result of the two forces of you and the other person should allow enough force to open the jar.Try to open it with a dish cloth. Peace

    My son, a chef, showed me the easiest way, you need to pierce the lid with something carefully this will break the seal and the jar will open. He used a chefs knife (the biggest knife) put the base (nearest the handle) on the jar and push carefully into the lid.... be careful =)Try using a bottle opener.

    you could place it in a small hot water tub where usually the lid would expand before the jar and then it would loosen up so then you could open it easilyYou can use one our hacks http://www.listonic.com/protips/get/fawnonmdzk Let us know if it worked for you!

    im assuming this is a home canned type jar of jam? use a bottle opener, the pointy kindif it's stuck or sealed, you should pour cold water on the glass jar, but not the top ( the plastic part.) u have to pour cold water on the glass part; with doing that the glass will get a little bit smaller and u can open it.or u can pour hot water on the plastic part, so it will get bigger and u can open it.

    I have used a rubber dish washing glove, tap the lid on a hard surface, tap the back of the jar with a butter knife a few times.i use the tip of a spoon under the edge of the lid to prie it up

    I lightly tap all the way around the seal of the lid with the end of a butter knife or spoon, just enough to leave little dents. This breaks the seal & makes it easier to open. Or, if your countertop is sturdy enough, you can lightly tap the lid on the edge of the counter to get the same effect.you can go to a store to buy a Rubber Grip Jar Opener it should be 3 dollars the most.
