Default Glass in my tuna? No it's struvite.

Found this in my tuna sammich today. First one in probably over a thousand jars over the years.

I canned a bunch of salmon one fall and couldn't figure out what the crunchy stuff was? Now I know.

Now that's a hunk of struvite. I've seen tiny ones but that's got to be a 10 carat version. See if you can sell it on ebay as a organic diamond.

I had a piece about the same size earlier this year, and really had no idea what it was.

Thanks for posting. Interesting for sure.

We had a couple of cans with these particles in the last two years. I thought it was un-desolved salt that got encapsulated in the olive oil that got put in last over the salt keeping it from desolving.

I had a few small granules in some half-pints I canned. Unfortunately I threw out a couple of jars worth before I figured out what was going on.

If you catch a bigger fish, do you find a quarter instead of a dime?
