Man Eats 70-Year-Old Beef

Thursday, 25 Aug 2011 02:35 PM

Curious about whether meat ages like wine, a Swedish man cracked open a jar of brisket that that had been sealed for more than 70 years and took a large bite, reports Newser.

Eskil Carlsson’s parents-in-law had stored the beef during World War II. They wanted to preserve some meat in case rationing became dire.

When Carlsson found the jar 10 years later, “the family had developed respect for the jar, that it had stayed sealed. We talked about it from time to time and it became like a member of the family,” he says.

After Carlsson’s wife died this year, he decided the meat had waited long enough. Carlsson invited all of his neighbors to take a bit of the preserved beef.

So how did it taste? “It didn’t smell much,” he says. “I shouldn’t exaggerate though, it was no delicacy.”
