Syrup, honey, juices, molasses, you name it. Sooner or later these culprits are going to lead to a bit of snarls, growls, or maybe even a few 4 letter words. (whispered quietly of course haha!)
I have some tips today on how to deal with a couple of these kitchen frustrations.
I know each of you have had those days when that lid just won't budge. I would start by gently tapping the lids on the counter...no luck. I tapped harder....and harder...then they were bent and really stuck! Grrrrr. I ran them under warm water. Then I hit them on the counter some more. In the end I would always get them open, but MAN what a pain!
Now some people may say to just clean off the jars an lids each time before you put them away. Sure, I guess I could. But most days I'm not thinking that clearly. And to teach the 5 others in the house a new rule.... well I just would rather use this trick here.
This can work for any lid to keep it clean. I have used foil, saran wrap, and even cheese cloth. A quick swipe of some butter or oil will also help keep your lids opening with ease.
Measuring and pouring your stickies.
I cook with honey a lot. But it is very hard to get it all back out of the measuring cup. Quite a bit can be left behind even after you pour and scrape it out.
Just take a bit of butter and slather up the sides. Or a quick spritz of spray will do the trick. It pours out like magic!
I hope these were helpful. Do you have more unsticky tips? Go ahead and share them in the comments. I would love to hear them!
