Thanks for the spam history lesson, Pat.
Patricia, I think I'm still inclined to try Spam. Maybe not with ketchup a butter. That doesn't sound too appealing, I admit.

I haven't ate Spam in years, but slice some of it off and skillet fry it on both sides and then eat it on bread. Very good.

My favorite Spam is "Spam Oven Roasted Turkey", which has a taste quite a bit different than the other Spams.

Carl, Spam is a pork product high in fat, salt and nitrate content. It was originally made in 1937, and used extensively by troops in WWII. As long as the can is unopened, it has an incredibly long shelf life - actually, a half-life. A lot of it was shipped to troops, through Hawaii, during WWII. Hawaiians fell in love with the stuff.

The State that consumes the most Spam of any in the US is Hawaii. They love the stuff over there. And, to be honest, a lot of the various ways they prepare it are really pretty good, e.g. Spam musubi, teryaki spam, and lots and lots more. Here's a reference to some Hawaiian Spam cookbooks.

I don't believe I've ever had spam. I know people fry it in a pan to heat it up  I imagine it would make a decent hamburger-style sandwich.  I really should buy some just to try it. 

What are the references to Hawaii and spam all about?  I must have missed something through the years.

Don't be sheepish about it, you have a right to your own taste!

Yesterday 90+ degrees. High today of 75, after the cold front moved through. I suspect we have seen the last of the scorching hot days at the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi. Sheepishly admit that I like Spam also, though I rarely ever eat it. Brought back a recipe for Spam fried rice from Hawaii, where the stuff is ubiquitous.

Spam's not the best food, but I like it.

Chris, I laughed at your comment about Spam, "but to my regret it was unforgettable." Oh yes! I remember it well. I echo your statement.
