Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
Back in the mid-70s, I worked in the Navy hospital in Halifax. Sterile distilled water came in cylindrical 80-oz brown glass bottles with short, narrow necks and small screw-on lids that were always stuck fast after their trip through the autoclave. To open such a bottle, we would upend it and gently rap the edge of the lid on the hard terrazzo floor. This technique never failed, and I use it to this day when I have to open a large jar. It’s less effective with small jars and bottles; dunno why.
