Spam. Ground up piggie parts. My mother-in-law from my first marriage, a war bride from London UK just thinks it is the greatest. My self, I've nerver been able to hack it. My wife thinks it's great. So what is it with people from across the sea thinking Spam is great?

Beats me! Can't stand the stuff. The only reason I would eat Spam Fritters served up by the Aldershot Cement Company when on scheme was that I was starving and there was nothing else. Evil or Very Mad

As I joined the Army as a Boy Soldier, I must have eaten Spam in all it's different variants. Spam Fritters were by far the best. Then again, the pink things were known as fingers. We were fed really well,but I always remember being famished. I didn't mind doing cookhouse fatigues,depending on which PS Cook was on,at least we had a good supper.

Agreed, though I don't have it that often. It was a post on the RAOC board that sent me on the hunt for a taste of the past. Smile

Yeh them holey things on tape. Not holy as that would be religion. Spam is pretty tasteless in my humble but I did like that bacon fry stuff. Thick with fat as well and probably still clogging the old arteries. You can still buy it in Lidl although probably not quite as fatty as the compo stuff. Used to eat it a lot in BAOR. See what I did there?

Edit: it's been moved to General so my BAOR was not necessary. Rats!

I stand corrected mjm34. Murray code it is. No wonder I remustered out of the trade. Embarassed

Compo corned beef was always a bit gritty to me. Suppose it was ground up bones or something? Officers seemed to like doorstep butties with it on though.

I should have known a thread on 'Computer SPAM' would end up on food! and I cannot be arssed to spilt it either! LoL

When in Rome and all that....

Westler Foods up here in Yorkshire still produce Sausages in Lard with are no longer square in the tin but round and packed in grease to fry your egg banjo with. I got a pack of 6 tins last year at Jack Frosts for .20p a tin as it was close to its 'Use By' Date, but who ever bothered with minor details like that anyway.

I have in front of me a small bag of Boiled Sweats from the revised 24 Hour Operational Ration Pack for Afghanistan replacing the Chocolate Bar as it melts in the heat. Not bad, but no green ones!

They have a 'Best Before' July 2011 so I have years to go before I need to eat them LoL

Seen them in my local shop. Not sure about lard any more although like most I was brought up on it. Tend to go for the oil these days but chips do not taste the same.

Love it when we go to the East coast and get fish and chips. Lining of grease on your pallet because a lot of them still use lard.

Sell by dates! Never used to have them and somehow survived. My missus wants to chuck things out if they are one day past their use by date. I use them and tell her it is just a guide. Wimps these days, no wonder there are so many allergies that we never used to have. No build up of resistance.

compo sausages,an other great i cant get up here in the north east,the only shop that sold them closed down years ago,with a bit luck the shop mike uses in north yorkshire might move to the north east. PS is it the taste of food drowned in lard we miss or the food its self?

It does what it says on the tin (B&M had them for .9p last year)



You use as much or as little of the fat (lard) as you want dan, and the taste is not drowned in it at all.

Best way is to use very little, and to blanch the sausages till heated up only.

Hmmm, good point there, I do like chips done in proper chip fat, taste so much better somehow.

Might just have a go for the hell of it. One can won't hurt. Wife hates sausages (Ooer missus) so will have to scoff the lot myself.

There was a car in my road yesterday with BFBS on it. No military around here so wonder what he was doing? I assume it was our BFBS?

I didn't, I found the picture on another forum! But have used my phone camera at times!

Problem with stores like B&M & Jack Frost is that they buy up close to date and surplus stock, and do not always have the same lines in store week to week.
