I just read up a bit more on Worcestershire sauce and the entire anchovy, bones and all, are dissolved and used. But, I like anchovies so I am okay with it :)
Thank you for all the effort you went to! I will have to become an apple junkie as I am not an early bird at all :) I'll tell you if it works!

If I someday, for some reason have pearls to spare, I will try to melt them with vinegar ;)

Avocados are ESPECIALLY poisonous to birds; I should know. However they are also quite toxic to practically all animals to varying degrees. The toxic agent, persin, has no harmful effect on humans.
Almonds are NOT part of the peach family! I refuse to believe that! D: D:
Okay I don't really know but that's too crazy

I'm going to find a pearl, somewhere, and put it in vinegar and see how long it takes and if it completely melts the pearl. Inquiring minds want to know.
Green coke? I can believe it ! Cause they now have green ketchup :)

The cashew nut actually grows out of a cashew apple. looks weird. They are also poisonous unless cooked right.

Now that I think about it, almonds do kind of look like mini peach pits. Very cool facts! I love this kind of stuff, thanks for sharing.

Until I did this article I thought they were fried twice :)
Almonds and peaches are actually a part of the much larger rose family (Rosaceae), which includes many other familiar tasty fruits like apricots, plums, raspberrys, strawberries, cherries, pears, etc.
The mustard family (Brassica) is an unrelated family that also contains a huge number of familiar foods like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, turnip, brussels sprouts, kale, canola, and of course mustard.
Thanks Fluffy! Lots of cool comments. Thumbs up for everyone.
Vinegar and most other acids will definitely dissolve pearls, chalk, limestone and even marble, which is much harder than pearls. All of these are primarily calcium carbonate, the active ingredient in Tums.
I've always loved that piece of trivia about honey. It's the only "natural" food that doesn't spoil. Maybe peanut butter is not mentioned because it's a processed food. It probably does take a long time to spoil, although I wouldn't know. It never lasts long around me!
