Mold on Apple Slice in Brown Sugar Jar

MsJunsu | May 17, 2012 06:59 AM

I read that adding a slice of apple to a jar of brown sugar can loosen up hardened chunks of sugar. And it did. Except I accidentally left the apple in there too long and mold started to grow on it. The apple was separated by a small piece of paper towel and plastic wrap but upon removing the expired slice, the jar did smell faintly moldy.. Does this mean I have to throw the entire jar away?
