Canned food in Yom Tov

Question:

BS”D

Shalom dear Rabbi,

Question: Can we open canned food on Yom Tov, for the purpose of making food for Yom Tov?

 

Answer:

The halachos of opening cans etc. on Yom Tov are the sme as for Shabbos, even though it is for food preparation. Open the can in a way that ruins it, or only half way, and then empty it’s contents and discard.

Have a good Yom Tov
