My mom was a child of the depression. She told me this story:
“I’m a child of the depression, I know this – you can eat spoiled fruit if you boil it for 10 minutes so it is edible. The alcohol in it evaporates and goes away. People don’t know that now days. You can’t do it with canned vegetables, they can be deadly” People who lived through the Great Depression knew this about fruit, people who haven’t lived through the Great Depression don’t seem to know it anymore.
I didn’t know that! There were life learning those that lived through World War II had.
