Very surprised to see that this topic has re-emerged..... and that it has had over 650 views and is (perhaps appropriately for something related to cooking) now a 'hot' topic! (Usually if I become involved in any topic on here it makes everybody magically disappear! )
I haven't eaten spam for years. When I was first married (at least a hundred years ago, I think!), we always had a tin of spam in the cupboard in case of emergency. It was actually quite tasty, as long as you had a tin of baked beans to accompany it! We used to fry it sometimes, but I have never used it in any other way.
Apparently, "A hundred million tons of spam was shipped overseas during WW2 and it was one of the key impacts on the home front in support of the troops." Who would have guessed then that spam would one day be the much-hated word that it is to computer users today?
Have a spamtastic day!
