    I think he linked through his Google account, that might have been the problem, but here's the actual article:

    And a teaser pic:

    Thanks Al - a good try - but still the same



    But in the pic you put as teaser I can see that cold weather is performing it's tricks.

    Ah, ok.
    At first I thought it was a fake, but the explanation was:
    Rotted apples left on tree became encased in ice, turned to mush, and then leaked out the bottom before the ice melted.

    Hello

    That might be so - or not - have to check my garden one of these days.

    Encased in ice - yes.

    Turned to mush - in subzero ( centigrade ) temp - not likely

    Mush having lower liquid temp than ice? No no & NO !


    Whatever - the pic is nice.

    From the article:
    "the temperature provided the perfect recipe: it was cold enough for the ice to remain, but warm enough for the apples to turn to complete mush, since apples have a lower freezing point than water."
    And yes that's possible, it's the principle behind those first aid ice-packs: It's water and starch.
    When they DO freeze they they're colder than plain ice and take longer to become liquid.
    Same principle explains seawater not freezing until about 28 degrees F but in that case it's the salt..
