Spotlight on Poisons in Fiction

It's Tuesday and we're feeling a little poisonous and I thought it would be fun to recap some of our most poisonous posts. 

Here's my review of A is for Arsenic: The poisons of Agatha Christie.

Author Duffy Brown did a wonderful post for us on poisonous posies

And Kerry Hammond reported back from the Blarney Castle Poison Garden

Here's my report on the Power of Poison Exhibit at the Museum of Natural History in New York

And in case you're not over the Once Upon A Time Finale, we have a recipe for a Poison Apple Drink from Carol Perry and Evil Queen Poison Apple Salad with Cranberries and Blue Cheese and a few other Once Upon A Time themed recipes. There isn't any real poison in any of it. Phew. 

Evil Queen Poison Apple Salad with Cranberries and Blue Cheese


2 Red Delicious Apples, cored but not peeled
1 Gala Apple, cored but not peeled
2 Granny Smith Apples, cored but not peeled
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup blue cheese chunks

1/4 cup Trader Joe's Orange Muscat Vinegar 
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper

Chop all apples into half inch chunks. Add cranberries and blue cheese. Mix vinegar and olive oil together add a dash each of salt and pepper. Mix dressing. Add to the salad and toss.
