For the summer exhibition of surrealist art at the Barbican Art Gallery, renowned London jellymongers Bompas & Parr have created a trio of "occult jams," one of which claims as its not-so-secret ingredient a minuscule snippet of the late Princess Diana's hair.
"Milk Jam infused with a speck of Princess Diana's hair" is (clearly) the most headline-worthy of the three. The other two are "Absinthe and pineapple with sand from the Great Pyramids" and "Plum and Oak with wood from Nelson's ship The Victory."
The jams retail for the equivalent of a mere $7.60 a jar, sold at the Barbican's gallery shop, so it seems just as likely that the Diana jam will end up in a summer flan as it will under glass at a museum somewhere. (The milk jam reportedly tastes like condensed milk.)
