Spam, I remember it from during the War. It had a key soldered to the top that had a little slot in the end the a tab on a strip of metal that ran around under the edge of the can, would fit into and you wound it, pulling the strip off until you could pull the lid off. I loved the salty gelatin that encased the spam.
Sliced and fried with eggs and potatoes. Minced with mayo and chopped pickles for sandwich spread, or just plain cold. Baked like a ham.
Young folk of today probably would read the label and wonder why there are no skull and cross bones toxic symbols emblazoned on the tin. However, Spam fed millions of troupes during the War as well as civilians since meat was rationed.
I have Spam on my Costco list and will buy a box if any can be found. When visiting Hawai'i a few years ago and went to a Costco store, one wall of the building was stacked with cases of Spam. I was told that it was the Hawaiian national food.
Do you regularly buy Spam or did all this talk about it give you a craving? I haven't looked for it in the grocery store for years. Does it still come in a metal can with the little key?
