Today, 5h/Larch became Ancient Egyptian embalmers!… YUCK!
Mummifying a tomato:
First, we made an incision and scooped out all of the seeds and pulp. The Egyptians removed the lungs, liver, stomach and the intestines and placed them canopic jars.
Next, we covered our dead bodies (tomatoes) in alcohol (anti-bacterial handwash) to clean the body.
Then, we packed the tomato with Natron
using a mix of table salt and bicarbonate of soda. This was used by the Ancient Egyptians to draw out the moisture from the body and dry it out.
Finally, we covered the tomatoes in bandages and sealed them in an air tight container.
