I'm trying to find sardines in a can that has to be opened with a key, not the pull tab kind. Any idea where I can find that type, or do they not even exist any more?
Can any of you sardine affecionados tell me if cans are still available with a key???
It was a hungry soul way back in the second half of the 19th century who invented the key to open tins. In 1920s the hand cranking, serrated edge can opener still used today was invented, but still the tins came with keys attached in one way or another. In the late Fifties the pull tab tin was devised.
