    In my day we would have picked and cooked our own beetroot. That's the problem with the youth of today, got it too easy.

    Just because you have an (_!_) the size of Cambodia, it doesn't mean everyone else has.

    I used to be paranoid about scraping the last few drops of Branston Pickle out of the jar in case the knife shaved off tiny slivers of glass....

    LOL @ OAC,

    have you tried turning the lid the wrong way, it might lossen it up a bit.

    Are you calling Halibut deformed?

    Are you saying his (_!_) wouldn't cover a pickle jar?

    Halibut - OA's insulting you...

    Shouldn't you be getting the lid off your beetroot?

    DQ's jar opening tip... the reason you can't open it is because of the vacuum inside the jar SOOO get a bottle opener and gently lever the side of the lid until you hear the 'popping' sound TA DAAAAAAA jar will open easily :D
