World's oldest ham turns 112, museum claims it's still edible

You may be able to eat it, but that doesn’t mean you should.

That seems to be the message as the oldest cured ham in the world turns 112 years old.

"It looks like a piece of old leather," the BBC reports.

Smithfield, Virginia Isle of Wight County Museum curator Tracey Neikirk told the Wall Street Journal, getting a new display case for the ham was a struggle. "I had a few exhibit companies say we can't make a case for that. They can make a case for Mrs. Lincoln's dress, but hams, not so much," she quipped.
