Redditor sets the internet ablaze by cooking with ingredient from 1965

A Reddit user’s plan to cook for their grandmother’s 95th birthday went awry...

but only after they shared a special ingredient used in the meal with the world.

The user, who goes by the name cswimc, posted on Reddit’s r/funny that they inquired about what salt their grandmother had available.

“It turns out the only container of salt she has is dated from 1965. It worked, and salt doesn’t really expire,” the Redditor wrote.

According to Morton’s website, salt does not expire, but the ingredients in iodized salt can reduce its shelf life, which is about five years.

Though it’s not likely the Redditor poisoned their grandmother with bad salt, the substance certainly wasn’t at its most potent .

If cswimc says their ancient seasoning worked, more power to them
