Disgusting things in cans that should not have been canned, Volume One

Time for a new blog series!

Let’s get this going right with Exhibit A:

canned whole chicken

Wow, sounds like a real timesaver! And it looks pretty good on the label, hey? Let’s crank open that can and see.


Hey look, schmaltz! (Excuse me, did you say something? Oh you were just retching quietly with your mouth shut? Sorry, my bad.)
Let’s birth this bird from its tin canal.


Ooh, it comes with a nice clear gristle jelly, I didn’t see that little extra on the label. It’s sure to be flavourful.
I think it’s time to brown up this bird in a nice warm oven.


Note that this poor carcass has been cooked not once but twice and still can’t manage to get a decent colour on. Also, is it just me, or does this chicken bear an uncomfortable resemblance to Ötzi the Iceman?
(Too soon?)

If you want to know more about this chicken (and who wouldn’t, really) Tracy’s full story (and a link to lots more great photos) is here.

Also, unbelievably, a British man with terrible judgement ate a canned chicken that was 50 years old… and he lived!
