How to Open a Wax-Sealed Jar?
The mustard is packaged in an elegant black stoneware jar and sealed with a gold wax-covered natural cork.
To open the jar, gently break the wax around the edge using the back of a knife. Then, carefully insert the tip of the knife between the cork and the stoneware, and go around the jar. Use a small hard-bristle brush to remove any remaining wax particles that may still be adhering to the jar.
