Jellyfish in Vinegar

May 9, 2011

One fine day I needed to use some rice vinegar. So I pulled it out of the cupboard and set it down on the counter, but something caught my eye. There was something white inside the glass container. I took a closer look, thinking perhaps the vinegar was expired and some random mold had grown inside the bottle. But no, Kiersten, that’s silly. Nothing grows in vinegar … right?


<blink> <blink>

A Jellyfish?

I searched all over the internet for anything like this happening at all, and absolutely nothing came up. Trippy.

Soooo … Won’t be using the rice vinegar. The bottle has a place of honor on our counter now. We’re a little nervous that if we break it open the jellyfish will jump out and strangle us or something.  Anyone else have any creepy unopened food stories?

    A friend of mine referred me to some links about a “vinegar mother,” he thinks that is what it is. Well vinegar mother or not and “okay to ignore” or not it is still super creepy.

    I’d take it back to where you bought it and demand a refund. Haha. That’s gross and very creepy!

    That is really creepy. I’ve never had anything like that in my many varieties of vinegar in my pantry. I once thought something was growing in my olive oil, but it turned out that my pantry was cold and it was just solidifying. It went away when I brought it up to room temperature.

    That is so nutso!! How weird. We have a friend that a hard mass (possibley a fruit pit) that had molded in an unopened caprisun. Ewww. They contacted Caprisun who said it happens sometimes and wouldn’t refund there money. Crazy!
