    +80 Year old Jar of preserved Salmon

    Here on Vancouver island we have quite a bit of native history. We dont have the oldest of finds that surface on the furthest west coast you can really get in Canada, but we find some older goodies from time to time.

    Being the history isnt the oldest, I really enjoy finding old homesteads from the turn of the century. The other week it was just my luck. I stumbled across an old 1890s farmhouse with fabulous owners that gave me free roam at the property. The property once belonged to a well off farming family. I wish I took pictures of just how amazing this place must have been back in the late 1800s but my eyes were on the mossy overgrown ground trying to find spots that might be detectable.

    Along my journey through this dense patch of woods, I came across a gigantic Sequoia tree. I didnt find anything but rusty nails around the property but hot a wonky repeatable hit on my Eq800.


    The current owners have had this property for 70 years. And 10 years previous to them owning it, the place was abandoned. But check....this....out!

    A jar of still intact preserved salmon. Never in my life would I have thought of finding this. You could slightly smell the salmon through the seal, and I didnt dare open the thing but how cool is that?!?!

    I've tried 50 year old pickles and jam from my gpas basement that he canned before I was born. It was still sealed and perfectly edible. I dont think I'd eat that fish tho, slight taint?

    That's some good eating there!

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I left the jar at the owners place to collect at a later date. I couldn't bare the idea of it cracking or opening in my car. The smell didnt smell horrible, but not great either, haha.

    Rang in at a repeatable -8 and 7 hahaha, so if you ever get those numbers, Preserved Salmon Guaranteed!

    That's neat! Something different! May be a good market for it .. I see on the strange food channels people eating rotten duck embryos and worse. Who knows what somebody would be willing to pay for aged salmon!

    Ebay it. If they can sell burnt toast that looks like Jesus, your 80 year old salmon will surely go for a high price.
