In Au­gust, a cen­tury-old fruit­cake left be­hind by Cap­tain Robert Fal­con Scott was dis­cov­ered in rel­a­tively good con­di­tion in Antarc­tica’s old­est build­ing at Cape Adare. Here’s what you had to say:


Some­one will prob­a­bly find my scones in 100 years time! I don’t have much suc­cess with them; they could be used as paving stones.


There are at least two ways to look at it: 1. You’ll no­tice Scott still didn’t eat it, and 2. Man, he dragged it a long way away to get rid of it!


Fruit­cakes taste bet­ter when they are at least a year old. Don’t know about one that age. I of­ten let mine ma­ture for at least six months, more if pos­si­ble.


I am a rar­ity in that I ac­tu­ally do like fruit­cake. But I don’t think I’d want to eat this one!
