I was bored and scrolling through Pinterest when I came across a pin about using mason jars as “tanks” for beta fish. Then I saw the related pins and I’m so disgusted.
Fish are animals that deserve proper care and respect.
Live animals are not decorations. They are not here to make your house look “cool” or “pretty.” If you can’t properly house or care for an animal don’t get it.
This is absolutely sick and this trend needs to stop.

I know this isn’t really ocean related but this is super important.

Poison Toffee Apples for Halloween

Ingredients
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • ¾ cups water
  • ½ cup liquid glucose/light corn syrup
  • few drops black gel food colouring
  • 6 Granny Smith apples (or 12 small apples)
Instructions
  1. Grease a piece of baking paper and place on a tray/baking sheet.
  2. Insert bamboo skewers in all the apples and set aside.
  3. In a medium pot, combine the sugar, water, glucose/corn syrup and food colouring and stir over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture feels smooth when you rub it between your fingers.
  4. When the sugar has dissolved, turn the heat up and wash the sides of the pot down with a pastry brush dipped into clean water to prevent crystals from forming.
  5. Allow the caramel to boil until it reaches the hard crack stage (150°c/310°F).
  6. Carefully dip the apples into the hot candy mixture and place on the baking paper to set and cool for approximately an hour before serving.
