Lurking in the furthest corner of my refrigerator was a jar of homemade raspberry sauce. If I were to guess the age of this particular sauce, I would say that is has been aging in the refrigerator a year or more. Last year, when my son visited us, I would make a jar of raspberry sauce to flavor our tea. We have not had any raspberry tea in around a year.
A long time ago, a friend at a forum asked me to post mold images. At the time, I did not have any food with mold and I suspected that was okay because I did not really think the request was pressing. The raspberry sauce had several lumps of mold and to fulfill an old request, the little image above and the two images below are microscopic images of pink and green mold.
The small image at the very top is a smear of mold from the raspberry sauce on a slide.
The image below is a flattened sample of mold.
The image below is not flattened and it was illuminated from both underneath and from the side. I use a small halogen lamp for side illumination.
This image reminds me of tweedy fabric.
