The new canned bacon I saw was pre cook and wrapped then sealed in the can. Just like the plastic wrapped pre cooked'

I just tried some new spam " Golden grail" spamalot special. I need to find a case of that, great stuff. I just check spam on line they have like 12 different types, who knew. I have to get a mixed case!

okay, I wasn't going to do this, but...

...you people have forced me to break out my spam story.

So there I was, ten years or so ago, helping a buddy who happens to be a Brit take offshore delivery on a new Tayana 48 and sail it from San Francisco to Mexico. We were no more than 30 miles beyond the Golden Gate when I asked about lunch. The proud new boat owner responded that lunch would be spam and crackers. Yes. Before I could ask whether there were other options, he added that this was pretty much going to be the standard lunch until we reached Mexico. Spam and crackers. Indeed, these were the only lunchables we had onboard.

I'm no mutineer, generally speaking, so I decided to at least test the fare before reprogramming the waypoints. To my eternal delight, I discovered the secret that spam is actually quite tasty once a vessel is no longer within sight of land. What I didn't realize until the end of the voyage, at which point I had purchased the much-cursed product and sampled it aboard my vessel while tied up at the dock, is that my newly acquired taste for spam was strictly an offshore phenomenon.

Intrigued, I am, to discovered the many new flavors of spam--will be trying the new hickory smoked the next time the beast leaves harbor.

If Spam tastes that good when sailing offshore, it must be totally awesome when floating in a liferaft.

If you have a spam sanwich, (i.e. between 2 pieces of white buttered bread) and then fry it a nice golden colour, add a fried egg and a couple of tomatoes - this is definitely much nicer than just a plain spam sandwich.

Years ago we used the canned bacon and it was quite salty and greasy. I haven't tried it recently.
If pigs are so smart how come they taste so good? Maybe we could keep a live pig on board and carve off what we want when we are hungry.

Red Feather canned butter 120z. / can from NZ is very good. We order ours as well as canned cheese and canned meats from (internet-grocer.com).

50 years ago Plumrose Corp. (Denmark) sold raw canned bacon. I have made an exhaustive internet and phone search for that kind of product and it does not exist anymore anywhere by anybody. We have an Engel MT35 portable freezer on our 25' sailboat. We pre-wrap 4 slices of Plumrose uncooked bacon per meal for 2 people and store months worth in the freezer. We have it with pancakes or crepes on Sundays and as BLT when we can find fresh lettuce and tomatoes. Plumrose bacon does not render away like cheaper bacon does, its worth the price at $5/lb.

And yes, even the 40+' boat crews get jealous when we show up to cook them Sunday breakfast with real, fresh bacon.

Also, if you're having a 'spam sandwich' who needs butter!

google Yoders canned bacon. Its the pre cooked type and then canned. Not raw greasey type.

To my knowledge, there are 3 brands of canned bacon:
Tulip (Plumrose, DAK/Danepak and Danola),
Celebrity
Yoders

Availability may be very spotty.

For canned bacon users/lovers, like I,
Goto ➥ http://www.canned-bacon.com/

Then there’s “fully cooked” (microwave bacon) which will do in a real pinch.

Canned bacon needs to be rinsed.

Dry cured bacon or ham will keep without refrigeration, for a while at least, longer in dry climates.

This stuff just scares me but... who knows, them Swedes do all sorts of kooky stuff really well...
