Rotten or fermented shark, kęstur hįkarl, was a way to eat Greenland shark. Normally the flesh of the greenland shark is highly toxic (to man and most mammals), but by allowing it to ferment in sand and gravel for 8 to 12 weeks and further cured and dried for a couple months, the toxinis are broken down and it is safe to consume with a little preperation. It smells very strongly of ammonia, somewhat like household lye bleach, and has something of a strong fishy--cheesy sort of taste which I find to be vile.

There's this traditional delicacy out here on the west coast of bc where candlefish (very oily - hence the name) are bury in a pit to rot, then boiled and the tasty treat is skimmed off the surface.

In all these sorts of things you have to wonder about the first guy to try it. Oh, look that tin of fish has gone bad and is all puffed out ...

Looks like codswallop to me and I've walloped a cod or two in my time.

Yeah, I've tried those places. One of them had two cans but would not ship to the Caribbean.

Last night I made spaghetti, using a can of "Beef" from Best Prices Storable Foods: Affordable food storage!. It was fabulous!

The beef was sort of like a brisket. Very tender, not too salty, and just overall a great taste. Both Gretchen and I were VERY surprised. Now we have to test the rest of the sample pack - canned, pork, ground beef, Turkey and chicken!!

The ingredients are:Beef, Salt. They actually cook the beef in the can, so the juices have no water added, and could easily used to start a great soup. I think it was $6.45 a can, so not cheap, but good to have around.

Look for cheeses and sausages that are hanging out in the open because they don't need refrigeration. Gourmet deli's have them but so do supermarkets. You'll find many unrefrigerated sausages, such as pepperoni, jerky and summer sausage at everyday supermarket prices.
