One such story has caught our attention on Instagram. This video shows a bizarre practice to test the purity of the honey he is selling. Take a look yourself:
In this video shared by the Instagram channel @kolkatadelites, a street vendor is seen selling Kolkata's purest honey. As claimed by the food blogger, the man’s name is Kurban who collects, filters and sells honey in Kolkata. The vendor gives a honeycomb dipped in honey to the blogger to taste and the reviews are pretty impressive. He sells a jar of honey for rupees 500. Now, here ends the good part. The bizarre part here is the method the vendor uses to test the purity of honey. He adds honey to currency notes and lights fire to them. If the currency note doesn’t burn, then it is proved that it is pure. Bizarre enough?
