No, not this:
We're taking about this stuff:
Spam strikes me as retro food if ever there was. The product was introduced just before WW2 and it's popularity soared in the post war years. You would think that as the country developed more sophisticated palates, foods like Spam would be gathering dust on grocery store shelves, but it appears Hormel still manages to do a land office business with its 'potted meat' sales.
I have not knowingly had Spam since I was a kid, but my mother used to treat it as a staple in the late 60's - mid 70's. Spam sandwiches were common as was just plain Spam (usually served with boiled potatoes and canned green beans on the side, as I recall). Spam hash was something else we had on occasion. Mom's culinary skills improved over the years and I don't think she ever cooked using Spam after about 1980.
Did anyone else eat Spam in their childhood? How about more recently? Any interesting Spam recipes/delicacies you care to share?
