In a bid for possibly the grossest food product ever, the British line Bompas and Parr have created a line of jams known as occult jams. Originally created for a surrealist art show in London, their “occult jams” mean jams infused with different objects in a search for eternal life. You can now buy their jams, including their milk jam infused with Princess Diana’s hair, a jam of absinthe and pineapple with sand from the Great Pyramids or plum and oak jam with wood from the British warship The Victory, Lord Nelson’s flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar.
