it's better to think that food is just food, but people can be healthy or unhealthy depending on their actions over time.

Amen.

Sounds good and welcome to DC. You joined us with a great idea. You will find us to be a little bit squirrely, strange sense of humor at times, caring, compassionate, and just plain fun.

Somewhere around here I used to have an entire page of haiku poetry about Spam (yeah, a friend living in Hawaii sent it to me).

Oh Claire, I hope you come across it and share! I enjoy Haiku almost as much as I enjoy limericks.

Spam sushi of sorts. A thin slice of fried spam with plum sauce on rice wrapped in seaweed. It's better than it sounds. Also, spam quiche! We use to eat it in college. Also better than it sounds. Spam with yellow mustard sandwiches....it's just like it sounds but I liked it anyway.

I'd almost forgotten that! It's awesome, so thanks for the reminder. And welcome to DC!

Sliced VERY thin and pan-fried, I think it's an acceptable emergency substitute for bacon in a BLT.

I think I dislike the idea of such a fatty product more than the actual taste of Spam. In fact I might take some camping on my next trip, because it's ideal for that: meat that doesn't need refrigeration. I'm not too fond of canned chicken, turkey or tuna. Spam would probably be good sliced and cooked in a skillet where you would end up with actual meat pieces rather than sort of goulash-y like the other canned stuff. (I once bought a whole canned chicken for camping and it was dreadful!)

Here's the classic recipe I mentioned earlier in the topic, compiled from several I've found on the Internet and as near as I can remember it's the one I cooked right off the suggested recipe on the can:

Ham-Style Baked Spam

12 oz. can Spam
1 T. whole cloves
1/3 C. brown sugar (packed measure)
1 t. water
1 t. prepared mustard
1/2 t. to 1 t. vinegar

Put Spam on rack in shallow pan or casserole dish. Score the surface diagonally in a cross hatch pattern, then poke the cloves in where the hatches cross.

Mix the remaining ingredients into a paste and smear over the surface of the Spam loaf. Bake in 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until browned.

Serve sliced. Pretend you're eating baked ham.


I hope somebody will cook this and report back.

There's a can of Spam in my hurricane emergency food stash. I'll bet it's pretty darn good if you're hungry enough. Just hope I don't find out any time soon. Also some canned chicken; maybe I'll eat the Spam first.
