I have a big problem opening old preserve jars with stewed fruit inside. The jars are the kind that have a rubber sealer band between the jar and the lid. normally you open by pulling the the jutting tab of the rubber ring. Unfortunately the rubber has become brittle with age and the tabs break off and the lids remain firmly on. Any ideas about how to open the jars without smashing them would be welcome!
