<sigh>

I'm actually very nice, except around chronically combative types.

Upon thawing and pulling them out of the cryovac ready to cook I had to throw out 3 racks of ribs that that were sitting in my freezer for about 3 months. They didn't pass the smell test. I thought about taking them back to Costco but it's been 3 months, anything could have happened.

I think this is a very subjective topic. Surstromming anybody?

From what my Swedish Dad told me, I won't be trying it. He wouldn't eat it.

That probably wouldn't pass the "sniff test."

One guy's description:

On opening the tin, the initial odour was not too bad: sour, if slightly farty. But after a few seconds the full horror made it from the tin to my nostrils. It was a mixture of old nappies that have been left to linger unsealed at the bottom of a bin, combined with the unmistakable and sharp note of dog faeces. This was overlaid with a faint vinegary sourness.

"When opened, the contents release a strong and sometimes overwhelming odour; the dish is ordinarily eaten outdoors."


I'd try it at least ...

My mum said you could smell it in the entire apartment building when someone opened a can. There used to be a date before which it couldn't be sold. From Wikipedia:

At the end of the 1940s, producers lobbied for a Swedish Royal decree (förordning) that would prevent improperly fermented fish from being sold. The decree forbade sales of the current year's production in Sweden prior to the third Thursday in August. The decree is no longer law, but the trade still abides by the date for the "premiere".[3]

I would try it if I didn't gag on the smell once the can was opened. No, I have never smelled it.
