    No mention of the flavored spams they have now?
    They now have maple, teriyaki, bacon flavor spam and though in a can you can portion out via vacuum seal or freezer bag with say rice or veggies.

    What flavored SPAM is the best? I know SPAM is not the same thing around the world. The company tries to make the stuff to liking of whatever country they are selling the product in. Any guesses what are the wildest flavored? I wonder if they make, Pizza flavored yet?

    From about DC on South, you can buy packets of sliced country ham. They won't tell you this on the package, and it's sold in the refrigerated meat cases, but there's so much salt in it that it won't spoil unrefrigerated, and it is safe to eat without even cooking it. IDK why they don't sell this stuff further north, but I've only ever seen it from about DC South.

    Country ham, like grits, is a southern thing.

    They sell country ham like that in my stores and have taken it on trips so might not be as southern as you think.

    Your profile indicates you live in West Virginia, which is below the Mason Dixon Line, and I consider it to be a southern state, and it is next to Virginia which is famous for its country hams. You’re less likely to find country ham in places like New York, Maine, New Hampshire, etc.

    It says on the pkg that it is sugar cured. They don't usually do both do they? Just curious.

    Salt-cured ham is processed by rubbing the entire surface of the meat with salt and allowing it to sit for several weeks before hanging it up to air dry.
    Sugar-cured ham, on the other hand, is coated with a mixture of sugar, salt, and spices that forms a sweet crust around the ham.
    Both hams are then smoked.

    I realize all of this. What I was referring to is the statement that the package shown in the picture was salt cured, when it clearly says sugar cured. I was wondering if a single ham can have both treatments?

    Post #45 called it a country ham, but never said it was salt cured, only that it didn’t need refrigeration because of the salt content. Sugar cured hams use a mixture of sugar and salt in the curing process.

    When I was in Virginia (that was a number of years ago), some stores even had it near the meat but NOT in a cold case (much like you often see the packages of precooked bacon that also don't require refrigeration unopened).

    I just made Spam hash for brunch (being retired I didn't get up for breakfast). I take a large potato and onion, green/yellow/red pepper (whichever you may have) and a can of Spam. Dice everything in 1/4 inch dice and fry. Use ketchup as necessary.

    I'm going to dehydrate some during my next dehydration session.

    The single slices are good on tortillas with cheese. I've also added it to mac and cheese.


    Everything has its pace - even Spam.

    "New hiking food"? Well the soldiers in WWII did plenty of hiking. They were also fed plenty of SPAM too. Everywhere they went, SPAM. In the field kitchens when they were on operations. SPAM. In the rest areas when they were relieved from the front lines. SPAM. All during their training before going overseas. SPAM SPAM SPAM. In those days there was a popular cartoon character named "Sad Sack". He was an everyman charicature of the average WWII G.I. that every soldier in the service reading the 'Stars And Stripes' military newspaper that was circulated everywhere worldwide throughout all branches of our military and everyone back home reading their own hometown newspapers all over the USA could also relate to. In those days a huge highlight of a serviceman's day was something called Mailcall. This was when the men all had their mail from home handed out to them. This was huge. This was when some pure gold such as cookies baked by Grandma back home might be a rare reality. An original WWII sad Sack cartoon~sad sack.gif

    korea is a huge market for spam, but it is a higher quality meat going into it corresponding with the relatively higher price - got its start as a black market item during that war
