World’s oldest sandwich, still fresh, discovered at church

World’s oldest sandwich, still fresh, discovered at church

Pieces of bread, beyond the expiration date by some 43,000 days, have been found perfectly preserved inside a church organ in Great Britain. From the Daily Mail:

The perfectly-preserved remains of a sandwich have been found inside a church organ 118 years after being left there by workmen.

Slices of crusty bread were found wrapped in a paper bag, which was sealed within the instrument when it was built in 1896.

The meal – thought to have been eaten with cheese by workers on their lunch break – was only found when the organ was being dismantled to be sold for parts.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
