(Newser) – Alongside exhibits by Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte at a surrealist art show in London sits jam supposedly made from Princess Diana's hair. The preserves, on sale for $7.60, were made by the owner of a catering company who was asked by the show's organizers to create a food item that played off the exhibit's theme. He infused the hair, bought off eBay (so take the jam's authenticity with a grain of salt), in gin then combined it with milk and sugar, reports the AP.

"We thought about it and the most mundane food of all is jam," said creator Sam Bompas. "So we made it a surreal object."
