T 12/20/2005 - The Power of Pineapple

Did you know that pineapple is acidic enough that given enough time, it will eat through a steel can? Truth!

I apparently don't make it to the back of my canned goods cabinet often enough. This morning I was frantically digging for "snacks" to send to school with the girls, & there was a mysterious brown gooey mess under & around one entire section. I just now went to explore & clean it up... an old can of pineapple (exp 07/2001) was the culprit. The pineapple had eaten clean through the steel can (yes, steel, not aluminum) on the bottom & the ooolllld icky juice oozed out. Yuck.
