Swedish Man Eats 70-Year-Old Brisket: 'It's OK'

Some people might have a beef with eating 70-year-old meat, but not Swedish senior citizen Eskil Carlsson.

He recently decided it was high time to treat his neighbors to a cut of beef which had been stored in a glass jar by his family for over 70 years.

"It didn't smell much, it didn't smell bad anyway. It was as if it had been meat from this week. I shouldn't exaggerate though, it was no delicacy," Carlsson told

A video of the eating experience can be seen here.
