    SPAM - it's almost primal!

    Shop Now
    Okay, I admit it, I am a lover of processed meats. I love sausage, bologna, hot dogs, ham, salami, SPAM, etc. Grind it up with some spices, fat, etc., stick it in a casing, and I'm your girl. While some may miss sweets when they switch to primal, it's these processed meats I miss. (Or mostly miss because I occasionally indulge.)

    So, I posted in another thread something silly about SPAM and I thought I should go see how non-primal it really is. Here are the ingredients for SPAM classic:

    Pork shoulder
    Ham
    Salt
    Water
    Potato Starch
    Sugar (not HFCS)
    Sodium Nitrate

    And they claim that 90% is from the pork shoulder. The gelatinous stuff is the aspic that happens when the pork broth cools.

    So, I'm thinking that perhaps I could make a primal version of SPAM for myself to crisp up and put next to fried eggs. They've given me 90% of the recipe.

    What say you primal cooks? Should I give it a shot?

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Gwamma-
    All this most recent spam are asshats that steal bank account info and then sell it.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    I don't know about making it yourself, but I keep a couple cans in the pantry for when that desire hits. I'm not too afraid of our gelatinous porky meat cube friend.
