When you discover your bread is mouldy or that leftover supper was kept in the fridge too long, analyzing the less-than-appealing foods likely isn't your first move, but a new exhibit at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum is taking a closer look.
It's certainly not a popular technique today, but burying food was considered one of the main ways to preserve food years ago.
Kerry-Leigh Burchill is the director general of the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum.
"[We've] seen a resurgence of that desire — not only from our visitors, but [the] public in general — to be very much more connected with their food and how it's being preserved," she told CFRA.
The exhibition will call the museum home for five years.
