myth that Medieval English hung out meat to rot before serving. I  
believe they misunderstood this as part of a curing/aging technique. >>>

We have had some discussions on curing of meat. Perhaps this  
Florilegium file might be of interest:
meat-aging-msg (20K) 1/10/08 The aging of meat to tenderize it in  
period and today.


On your topic as a whole, there might be some good references  
mentioned in this file:

rotten-meat-msg (50K) 5/19/06 Comments on the "they used spices to  
cover the taste of rotten meat" myth.
