Sometimes you have really work for your food.

Ringer loves my Mom’s homemade sauerkraut.  She’s bugged me so often about swiping her a jar, Mom will just send one with me for her.  The catch is that when you reuse the rings (the part that holds down the canning lids), they can get a bit rusty.  When that happens, it can be a bit tricky to get it open.  We tried everything to get it opened.  Running it under hot water, tapping it, brute strength, and passing it back and forth to try something else.  I’m convinced it was sheer willpower that opened it.  Of course, Ringer maintains that she loosened it for me.

Not surprisingly, Lindz was laughing at us the whole time it took us to get it open.
