I don't know if this has been posted before about the processed meat, so if there is a thread about Spam the luncheon meat...my apologies. -- Nancy

How many of you like Spam? (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) I like them myself. (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Here are some facts about Spam (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) :

From URL: http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~ddgarcia/spam.html#Useless

• In America, it's consumed at the rate of 3.8 cans a second by more than 60 million Americans.
• It's trademarked in 92 countries, and sold in 45, from Anguilla to Zimbabwe
• If laid end-to-end, 5 billion cans would encircle the earth 12 1/2 times
• 5 billion cans of SPAM would feed a family of four, three meals a day, for 4,566,210 years
• You can grill more than 29 billion Spamburgers with it, and that supply would last 5.4 days if everyone on Earth ate one spamburger for dinner each night
• Each year, 100 million pounds (45 million kg) of Spam are sold around the world.
• SPAM is made in two U.S. locations - Austin, Minnesota, and Fremont, Nebraska - and seven other countries: England, Australia, Denmark, Philippines, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea.
• The average consumers of Spam are families with several children, especially in the southeastern U.S.
• In 1989, the U.S. armed forces bought 3.3 million pounds of SPAM.
• Hawaii, Alaska, Arkansas, Texas, and Alabama rate the highest in spam consumption respectively.
• Among the 50 foreign countries where Spam is sold, the UK and South Korea are the largest markets.
• In South Korea, SPAM is considered an upscale food and one of the most popular American imports. The Wall Street Journal recently spotted a Seoul executive in search of the perfect gift. The executive deliberately skipped over traditional gift items such as wine and chocolates in favor of SPAM, explaining, "It is an impressive gift."
• Hormel PR man Allen Krejci says: "SPAM has endured because of its convenience and versatility. You can eat it hot or cold. You slice, dice, or cube it. You can eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snacks. In fact, the only thing that limits your use of SPAM is your imagination."
• Nikita Krushchev once credited SPAM with the survival of the WWII Russian army. ''Without SPAM, we wouldn't have been able to feed our army,'' he said.
• Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia eats a sandwich of SPAM and mayonnaise on white bread three times a week.
• Number of miles a snowmobile must drive at -30 F to fully brown a can of Spam wired to the engine: 35 (Source: The Iditarod [heard on a Madison, WI radio report for "National Canned Luncheon Meat Day, '96])

Since this thread is about "cooking", maybe you can share some receipes that includes Spam for those of us who likes the meat? (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I was a child during WW 2, during the time when meat was rationed. So my mom had Spam at least once a week.

She stuck whole cloves in the top (after scouring little squares first) and then put a mixture of brown sugar, mustard and a little vinegar on the top, then baking in the oven until hot. Tastes just like ham! Slice it up and make sure you get some of that juice on each slice. Yum.
