    I've had a jar of pickled Coho salmon in my fridge for what
    has to be close to 10 years now. Looks as fresh as the day
    it was canned.

    Wife made it years ago, but I don't really care for pickled
    fish..that, and I'm too stubborn to throw out good food.

    At this point I think it's going to become 'coon food..I'm
    sure the little bandits would love it.

    BTW, on that jar..if you can smell it the seals been broken.

    I think it's because the rubber or what ever material was used as the ring to seal out the air has been made wet and dried out over and over again, it may have saturated through or the smell crawled bit by bit over time. It's still super tight and all intact without any cracks around said ring. I'd love to open it but I fear the smell will NEVER come off.

    Well, it was from scratch. So can of salmon, egg,flour, and mix it up and cook like pancakes. Think you could add a little milk...might be a good idea to add a teaspoon of baking powder.

    Some 30 years back I was trapping mink, and made my own fish oil. Not
    hard to make really...just catch a bunch of fish, chop them up (guts and all)
    and put the pieces in a 1 gal. glass jar, put the lid on. Poke a hole in the
    lid and put in an exhaust tube about 1/2" x 18" long. Be sure to seal
    around the vent tube where it goes through the lid.

    Find a good spot, down wind, and bury it about a foot deep, with
    the vent hose poking up above ground. Come back in a year (or so) and
    dig it back up. When you open it up, but sure a good stiff wind is hitting
    you in the back.

    You'll have both fish oil, and fish "paste". Smells awful...works great.

    I wonder if some scientists would like to compare it to the Salmon coming from our oceans now. You might want to check with a local university! Great find. I grew up eating canned salmon, one of my favorites!

    My nephew is a waste water guy. Has been to Guam, Saipan, Phillipines working on systems. Has eaten such things as fried bat wings(leave hair on), and a lot of fish. Hhe was warned about the levels of mercury in him by a doctor. Told to cut back on fish.

    I have a story to rival this one I think - about 20 years ago a friend of mine showed me a can of oysters from about 1920 - Unopened , with an intact label - kind of a "black face" African American - rather racist looking now days ! I can only imagine the stench if that can was opened now !
