My parents (both of the WWII era) served Spam occassionally. I've tried it a few times as an adult and think it is not very good. It's passable if it's fried.

Ever had corned mutton? I find it makes a fine sandwich if you slice it about 3/8ths of a centimeter thick, with tomatoes, Dijon mustard, mayonnaise/whipped dressing/salad cream,The tomato is imperative, other wise it is too salty, what with both Djon and corned mutton.

I haven't had it in quite a few years, but I think it's okay in small amounts.
My dad has said he likes it, so I think my mom still buys it occasionally.
I wouldn't want to be stuck with nothing to eat but Spam, Spam, Spam,
and Spam!

Oh -- I was also going to say that a few weeks ago, at a restaurant and
market near me that specializes in foods from Iran, Turkey, and around the
south Caspian Sea region, I had put-it-together-yourself gyro sandwiches
with particularly good gyro meat. What makes it remarkable is that I had
way more than I could eat, and heating the leftover meat for a couple of
minutes the next day in a regular oven and putting it on my favorite
Brownberry "Health Nut" bread (the smaller, denser, more expensive of
the two identically-named loaves) made it taste fabulous. Much better
than any I'd had previously.

I like it in a sandwich, but don't have it often because of its fat content. (It was invented for soldiers in the early twentieth century, and my daily energy use is not quite as high as theirs.)

In addition to tasting horrible and having a disgusting flobbedy texture, spam sometimes has this jelly in the corners/edges of the cans which has a really lurid pink or blue colour, which is suggestive of a chemistry in its production which makes me very suspicious. Although the original production of spam predates mechanised meat separation processes such as mechanically recovered meat http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mechanically_recovered_meat, and advanced meat recovery, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_meat_recovery, it looks like the kind of stuff which might be made this way today. Both of these are so far removed from what you would like to happen to food you eat, and in general make one suspicious about what bits of animal are actually in it, that I will not eat anything that even resembles it today if I have any choice in the matter.

Like HotDogs? And Sausages?
Certainly I don't eat Frankenfurters, and am in general suspicious of all sausages of fine undifferentiated texture, and indeed any kind of sausage which only obtainable pre-cooked. Frankenfurters have a rather suspicious blandness with a chemical edge which I don't like anyway. I also refuse to eat any meat products which have di-, tri- or poly-phosphates on their ingredients list, these chemicals are added purely to increase water-retentiveness, and thus sell you water instead of meat. The cheap British sausage, as widely sold in supermarkets and served in transport cafés, and from late night stalls in central London, is also an object to be avoided like the plague.

In several countries in Europe (at least), including Britain, you can buy high quality sausages, generally of a coarse texture, and either raw requiring thorough cooking, or else cured (like salami). In these conditions, I don't think it would be feasible to include MRM in the ingredients. They are not cheap, nor available everywhere that sells meat, but they are truly wonderful. Indeed we consider such things very highly desirable. They are the only kind of sausage I eat, when I have any say in the matter. In fact I avoid buying any meat at all in down- or mid-market supermarkets, apart from imported charcuterie.

I was persuaded, by a Swiss friend when in Switzerland, to try some of their sausages they have in Switzerland, I forget the name, which are of undifferentiated texture, and suspiciously pale. I learned the paleness comes because they are made of veal. In agreeing to this, it occurred to me that the Swiss, having very strict food laws (on the naturalness of food), probably wouldn't allow any crap in their sausages, and my friends were certainly very discerning in food matters. But I was nonetheless rather disappointed by these sausages. In the distant future when I have plenty of time, I'll probably have a go at making my own sausages so I know exactly what's in them, and it will be of high quality.

I also examine the ingredients list on patés very carefully, and won't buy most of them. Though I confess the most common reason for refusing to buy them is the large amount of lard in the ingredients list. Quite what lard is doing in the ingredients list of chicken liver paté I find it very hard to tell, aside from making it cheaper and less healthy, it certainly isn't included in my home-made clp.

When I was young we were sort of poor. Spam was cheap so we were exposed to it often. My mom would mix it with velveta cheese, put some between a hamburger bun and toast it in the broiler. I kiddingly called them "Spam Bams" for the way I purported that they hit your stomach. I hate spam, always did, always will. My mom did the best she could with what little she had to work with.

Large hunks of organic flotsam, which wash ashore occasionally, come to be known as 'globsters'. They are generally identified as 'globs' of whale blubber, or part of large carcass -- like a basking shark. Many people misinterpret these 'globsters' as something from an unknown species.

But each one that has been studied has been proven to be nothing but a hunk of flesh,with maybe some seaweed tangled up in it.:whistle:

The gelatinous material in the Spam can is called twillig.

Twillig is also used as a sort of spackle for turkey loaves in place of the natural fats that have been lost during processing.

It makes me smile to say the word Twillig out loud.

Spam reminds me of two things, Lunch with my grandfather at Heckshire State Park.
It was his daily ritual; Two slices of fried spam on a hamburger bun, with cheese and ketchup. I used to love when he invited me to come along.

The second was a guy I used to work with. His name was Dan, he was unusually tall so first I think his name was Giant Dan, then Giant man, then somehow he became Giant Spam.

Spiced ham

I prefer my own definition: Spurious Ham

As a meat smoker, curer, and sausage maker, I'm a bit of a snob in this department. To me, Spam is an abomination...a desecration of the exhalted porcine. It's bad enough that Hormel presses brine-cured pork bits into a vagely ham-like shape and calls it ham. This stuff, they pump into a can and cook it there...basically a caseless sausage...and to my taste, not a good one at all. :sick: :lol:

Hi, Special process ham (Spam) is a usefull culinary tool in that it seems to keep well for quite some time. My wife and I keep an emergency larder; a good store of the food stuffs that will carry us over in the event of a one month disaster ie major hurricane, ice storm...etc. Thankfully they are rare,
infrequent to be sure, but it is a simple matter of rotating the stock of such a
store. In that, I occasionally use spam for breakfast. Fried up with eggs and homefries, it serves me well. I "prefer" a good canned ham, and there are some better than others.
In Hawaii, where I lived for some years, they prize this canned spam confection , and serve it with fresh pineapple. Back in the day, there just wasn't a lot of meat in the islands. Fish and poi were the main stays.
When the military came to Hawaii, they brought with them the miracle of canned meat....ie Spam. Food of the gods they thought. Twist off the lid and
feast!! In England, durring the second World War, Spam became a luxury commodity as there were severe scarcities of all food items, and again, military spam found it's way onto the great list of wanted foods that kept well. Luxury.....'OH! To have some canned meat!' (For those too young to remember, spam used to come with a
"Twist Key" soldered to the bottom, which had a small 1/4 inch slit through which you put the slim metal tab of the pre-scored opening strip into, and then started to carefully wind the key, pulling the metal strip off in a neat 1/4 inch ribbon, allowing you to open the can in the field without getting any metal fillings in the meat. This method persisted for "years". )
Nothing is better than fresh meats when you can get them. But the blessings of a can....in season, serve us well. When your power has been off for four days and you can't cook on your electric stove, a slice of spam on a stick over a wood fire tastes remarkably good.
Spam,.......'cause...ya never know. Ya know? Ya never know. :lol:

This has been known to wake up bears in winter when reheated.

In a large frying pan put two cans of diced spam and saute until browned. When nearly done with the browning process add six to eight diced russet potatoes and saute a bit longer until the potatoes start to get some color. (I have big frying pans)

Lower heat and add about two cups brown sugar, ( I always eye shoot it so you have to add to taste) two cans of whole kernal corn and enough maple syrup so you can taste it. There should be enough moisture to make a liquid, if not add a bit.

Cover and simmer until the pototoes are done all the way through. As I tend to use liberal amounts of salt and pepper while cooking it has a "kettle corn" effect of salty and sweet that you will either love or hate.

I don't remember Spam that way (too young I guess), but for years corned beef was packaged that way; Hormel, Mary Kitchen, etc. In the past 4 years or so the twist key/strip has been replaced with a big tab (which hurts my fingers big-time) on the underside. :( Not an improvement...

Hi, Yes, the big "pop-lid" must be an manufacturing efficiency. That's because they are cheap; saves them money.
Ah, canned corned beef and dinty moore's beef stew, the cruising sailor's friend. When you are "Out There!" and there weather ahead, you heat up your beef stew, soup and other warm things ahead of time, because there will be no cooking when the heavy weather hits, so you do it while you still can. Poped into a pre-warmed large mouth thermos, these things will save the day, properly chewed and eaten slowly. Add a couple crackers. Yum. For those who don't cook much, the can gets them by, so to speak.
It's kind of like plastic telescopes vs a good Dobsonian, but ....better than nothing. Still, canned food will get you through in a pinch.
By the way, A kitchen towel will shield your hand and fingers from specific danger when you try to pull that lid off. The blood you save might be your own. :)

good restaurants. Top of the food chain. I've never tried camping with
beans and tuna. New cullinary directions build character! :)
Best regards, Dan

That sounds delicious! Tomorrow my addition to the post your dinner thread will be spam, cornbeef hash, and deep fried chocolate cake

I went to a town festival a few months back. They had the usual food stands, but one that stood out was selling things like deep-fried Twinkies, Oreo cookies, etc.

Yes, there was a line for that stand <sigh>

Yep, at the county fair they have deep friend candy bars. I have never tried one but I admit, I am curious.

You could always get some onion ring batter (mix; powdered) at the local grocery store, coat and deep-fry your own. :) Lots of people swear by deep-fried Mars Bars (or Almond Snickers here in the US).

I'll pass, though; don't need all those calories or carbs!
