It is the best.

Managed to sell Marmite to my family and kiddo, surprisingly enough. It is not as off putting as a pig head/knee/foot sticking out of the pot on the stove. But those don't smell (ie. not as good for us ) Marmite does.

Almost all that is really ill smelling is usually good for us. Just like the way kids hate green vegetables, it is good for them. Bloated cans are probably an exception to this rule.

Off to make a sauerkraut soup. Fermented ill smelling superfood.

Eta - recipe of a life saving, healthy, ill smelling soup: (smells fades in 10min)

Fry diced bacon and onion, garlic. Add cubed two peeled potatoes. Add two teaspoons of sweet paprika and smoked paprika powder. Add a spoon of corsely milled flour, fry and make watery soup base by adding water. Add carroway seeds, marjoram, bay leaf and sarriette (magic herb found in Coop/Migros, summer savory). Add some sausage. Boil till spuds get softish, then add ill smelling unwashed sauerkraut. Don't overcook to not kill the divine lactic germs. Add salt, pepper and a bit of sugar. Add a pinch of thyme, if feeling French and fancy. Eat often and live for ever!

(It is a soup beer culture serves to beer.)

Sounds delicious, MC. I would eat this with polenta, not bread.

And who doesn't love kimchi anyway? My grandmother used to do something similar, it was like a long lost friend when I discovered kimchi. It's just that I don't see it around that much, only in Coop if I remember correctly. Where do you get yours?

My tin is not looking good!
Best before, and I am sure it was.
That is what is called a bombage, in the worst case it is caused by Clostridium botulinum, a really nasty Bazillus as it can or will kill you, however if you are feeling lucky you can heat the contents to over 90° this will effectively kill the bacteria making your Surstöming safe to eat, whereas "safe" in regards to Surstöming is a flexible term at best.
But having said that a bulged can seems to be perfectly normal with Surströming...
Quote:
Indigenous to northern Sweden, surströmming is herring that is fermented in barrels for a couple of months, then put into tin cans for up to another year. The fermentation is so strong that the can actually bulges from pressure, and it has been banned by some airlines who say that it is an explosive safety hazard. Many people eat it outdoors because of the strong odors released when the can is opened, often compared to rotten eggs, vinegar, and rancid butter. This stinky food even has its own museum.
You could have a real delicates on your hands there.
