I bought a beautiful can of olive oil a few months ago and it recently became available to use. Perfect timing.
I wore rubber kitchen gloves and then used a can opener to carefully cut the top off. The can opener tended to get stuck on the corners, so I removed the can opener and clamped it down again so as not to damage the top edge. I used small needle nosed pliers (in photo) to push down the damage the teeth did on one corner.
Then I used a scrub brush and dish soap to clean the inside of the can.
I've been growing basil from seeds and they're ready to be transplanted. All of my basil will stay indoors until June, at which time I'll put it outdoors. This tin however, will live on my kitchen counter all summer long.
