What's the oldest thing you've found in a refrigerator

And it can't be spoiled. In the fall of 1953 when I was a senior in high school, my mom baked a fruitcake. No one in our family was big on fruitcakes. She wrapped it in foil and would cut a sliver off from time to time. When she died in November of 1985 there was still a small piece of that fruitcake, still wrapped in foil. It was not rotten, not moldy, but it was VERY DRY. When we cleaned out her fridge we found it and threw it away without sampling it. True story.

Only the fridge, or can there be freezer entries?

I have a piece of my wedding cake in the freezer, and my 25th anniversary is coming up soon....

Francesca

P.S.

The cake is stored near the dead bat that's been in there since 2009...I'll save that story for a "weirdest thing in the fridge" thread.

Well shoot, pre-hack we had a loooooong fruitcake thread going, but it was killed along with the looooooong Okra thread. Your story would fit right in Bob!

But the only old stuff in my refrigerator are old condiments that I forget about. How long does mustard last anyway?

Hi: rgrugg... The oldest thing in our refrigerator is the "Duplex action Refrigerator" itself!!! I have some very old glassware and some single malt Scotch. Unfortunately the 40 yr. old Bourbon seems to have sipped away.

Well, if a freezer counts, my step-father's fingers in a jar in the freezer. Not ALL of them.

My step-father would find SOME way/reason to stick his hand under the lawnmower and cut off bits of his fingers every summer. We'd see him running toward the house and mom would yell, "Grab a sheet, he's done it again!" The next thing we'd hear from her was, "Find the pieces!"

So, we kids woud look, quickly, for whatever pieces we could find so the doctors at the local ER could put bits of him together...again.

I don't know if it was because we didn't like him, because we were OCD, or just because we were kids, we'd keep looking for pieces after they left for the hospital. Then, we'd give those pieces to mom when she got home. She'd put them in a jar in the freezer just so she could shake them in front of our stepfather every spring and remind him NOT to stick parts UNDER the lawnmower. It never seemed to have worked.

Stepfather died long after I left home and after several years, mom decided to sell the house. Cleaning out the enormous chest freezer, mom found half pint jar in the bottom...with finger parts in it.

Mom was in a quandry...he was already dead and buried, so she just couldn't stick his fingers in somewhere with him. She couldn't toss them in the trash, either.

Truth is, I have no idea what happened to them, I only know that when mom died, we didn't find any spare fingers.

So...it's an "Icebox"!!!!

If that's the honest-to-Pete mfr.s explanation of the "Duplex" name, it's got to be one of the first, best examples of American Ingenuity in Advertising!

Smile Wedding cake

When we were married, we heard that it was romantic to save a piece of wedding cake in the freezer to eat on your first anniversary. So we tried it. Unfortunately, our refrigerator at the time didn't have a 'deep freeze' it was only the cold coils in the upper part of the refrigerator. Needless to say, after one year, that cake wasn't fit to eat and was tossed.

We saved ours for more practical purposes: Whoever files for divorce first has to eat that piece of cake.

It's the glue that's held our marriage together for 25 years so far!

Francesca, Incurable Romantic
