Oven Roasted Turkey SPAM! A good 'emergency food' choice... if you like SPAM!
When it comes to Emergency Supplies, most of us think about stocking up on some sort of canned meats that have a long self life. One of the most popular brands is SPAM! What comes to mind for most of us is the usual blue rectangular can of 'Classic Spam.'
What are the ingredients of Classic Spam?
According to the SPAM website, the ingredients are 'Pork with Ham, Salt, Water, Potato Starch, Sugar and Sodium Nitrate.'
How is SPAM made?
The official answer is 'First, the pork and ham are pre-ground. Then, salt, sugar and the rest of the ingredients are added and mixed, to reach the desired temperature.
From there, the mixture is moved over to the canning line, where it’s filled into the familiar metal cans, 12 ounces at a time. Once filled, cans are conveyed to a closing machine where lids are applied through vacuum-sealing.
Next, the cans are cooked and cooled for about three hours. At this point they’re nearly ready for enjoyment. But the cans can’t leave naked. Labels are applied and then they’re off to be cased, where they await distribution. - Spam website.
