More Frozen Food Found in Arctic

Dec 17, 2009

In this month's issue, we've got the scoop on Shackleton's whiskey, but according to the AP, more frozen food has been discovered in the Arctic: two blocks of New Zealand butter, to be exact. The butter was found in the hut used by British explorer Robert Falcon Scott during his failed 1910-1912 expedition. Recent deterioration of the hut had prompted the Antarctic Heritage Trust to begin a preservation project, and that's when the butter was discovered. Apparently, the butter's pretty ripe, but hey -- if they find some frozen sugar and cinnamon, we can make 18th-century Hot Brick Toddies!
