      I just use a can opener - the old pry type. There is enough of a lip on the
      lid to grab onto. Since you're going to throw it away anyhow, it doesn't
      really matter if you bend it a bit.

      I made a batch-o-this yesterday -- my neighbor
      actually asked me what's cookin . . . smelled so
      delicious -- used a combo of Honey Crisp and Empire
      apples -- both are tart-crisp-juicy -- so figured
      they'd hold up to one hour of simmering. Since the
      recipe was EXACTLY 6 quarts, I didn't have any left
      over to try -- although the pickle juice was amazing.
      Again thanks for the recipe.

      Does anyone have any tricks/hints/clues as to how to
      get a Ball/Kerr jar open once yer ready to sample your
      "Beckey Homecky" skills? Read a ton about home
      canning, but so far, nothing about what tool to use to
      open the lids -- I'm guessing since you cannot reuse
      them, maybe an old fashioned pointy can opener might
      work, but if anyone has a better trick, I'd appreciate
