Raise your hand if you like SPAM....
That's likely not the majority of folks, especially foodies who's impeccably high standards don't allow for meals involving meat in a blue tin.
But if you can believe it...SPAM turns 75 years old this year.
This article from the Wisconsin State Journal will open your eyes to more facts and recipes involving spiced ham (that's apparently what SPAM stands for) than you could possibly imagine.
Did you know it was made in Austin, Minnesota?
Did you know it's made using 2 different cuts of pork?
Did you know there are 2 NEW flavors?
Did you know that a recipe containing spam won a blue ribbon at the Wisconsin State Fair?
I answered NO to those 4 questions. So call me a SPAM novice, but I do remember the version in the Kevin Costner movie-that-bombed "Waterworld" was called "SMEAT". I guess that means it stands for spiced meat?
Anyhow, those who like SPAM will enjoy these little blocks of meat-inspired knowledge. Others won't and will likely never be converted into thinking this is a good idea to build a meal around.
