Is maple syrup mold harmful?

I’ve heard that the mold that sometimes grows on the surface of maple syrup isn’t harmful, and that one can simply pour the syrup through a coffee filter to remove it. Other people say that you should throw out the syrup and buy a fresh bottle. Which is right, and if filtering works are there any other steps one should take to slow the reappearance of mold? Would heating the syrup to a certain temperature help? Should we store our syrup in the refrigerator?

Refrigerate Cream Cheese Cookies?

I made cream cream cheese cookies, it has a graham cracker crust like cookie with a dimple in it and then filled with a filling containing cream chees, egg yoke, vanilla, and sugar and then baked. The only information I could that seemed relevant was in regards to a recipe where the cream cheese was in the cookie itself, not in a almost gelatin like filling. I'm not sure if these need to be refrigerated. I would like to ship some to a relative but I'm not if that's a good idea.

Ran out of water

I canned my tuna outside today. Forgot to add water for the new batch. When I open lid, there was a small brown puddle left. Water still in cans. No cracks or broken glass. Just an Amber discoloration. Lids are sealed. Thinking they got well done but still ok to eat, what do you think?

No lemon juice in canned tomatoes

My mother helped me can a bunch of fresh tomatoes. We used a water bath for 40 min in pint jars. I read afterward that we were supposed to use lemon juice. My mom says she never has. I’m nervous. Should I toss? They have been stored in my pantry for a month now.

Can I safely make apple sauce out of apples that have damage from coddling moth worms?

Can I safely make apple sauce out of apples that have damage from coddling moth or other apple worms? I wash the apples and only use the undamaged portions of the apples. I'm concerned about possible Patulin contamination.
