I used to eat these as a kid. Except I would use ketchup instead of mayo.

I found that as a teen doing long hikes a can of spam, cheese and crackers makes for an easy trail side lunch. However IMHO doing the economics os such lunches it is not very economical, nor is that lunch lightweight.

Recently I was shopping for myself, getting a summer's worth of food. I food that among canned meats, spam is a higher priced canned meat.

Now we do not eat much spam, as there are much cheaper menu items. with less preservatives.

B cans a lot of applesauce each year. And pumpkin, ...

I just noticed that we still have a bunch of horseradish, one bottom drawer in our frig is all horseradish.

The dehydrator is already full today. But maybe we can shift to drying horseradish soon.

Any ideas on the best method of storing so much horseradish?

I always loved sardines on a Premium saltine as a kid! haha

Also enjoy 2 beef hotdogs boiled, then chilled, preferably overnight. Slice them in half the long way, load your WHITE bread with Miracle Whip mayo, slap the 4 slices of dog onto one side of the bread and top with sliced cucumbers and the other piece of bread. Yummy comfort food! Dad always ate the same but with tomatoes! lol Weird, but honestly, it's pretty dang all right if I do say so myself!

Default sardines and hot dogs

I still enjoy sardines on saltine crackers. Very inexpensive and so good for you. We also used to eat Vienna sausages (or Vianny weeners as my Virginia uncle called them) cut in half lengthwise on white bread with mayo. A staple from early married days was a whole spam, scored and coated with mustard and whole cloves stuck in the top and baked for an hour. GAG. Today whole cloves cost ten times more than a can of spam but they must have been cheap back then.

We I was first married we were so poor that I would save all the chicken livers from the chickens it was my job to spit for the rotisserie at the local IGA. After about three days I'd have enough free chicken livers to make a supper from. I fried them in butter with a little onion, and when we had the money, a little bacon. Sometimes I "creamed" them with a little milk and we ate them on toast. We at chicken livers two or three times a week. I was actually glad when hubby shot a deer.....until around March when we'd be so sick of eating venison that we couldn't stand it.

On another note - Lobster's only $3.00 a pound so we're gorging this weekend. Might spring for a bottle of champagne. Now that's a meal....lobster and champagne!

in the GROUND?

Seriously, my dad just let it go until he needed some. I suppose it would be hard digging, come February... but don't they keep in a root cellar situation fairly well??

(PS if you have extra I'll be glad to store some for you in MY ground until next year or so... )

American girl.... sounds like you were eating homemade pate'!! I buy chix livers and saute them with onion, garlic, mushrooms, and then whirl up in my Cuisinart and add spices. It's yummy stuff, but if I 'had' to eat it every day for supper, I guess it would get pretty sickening in a short amount of time! lol

We all should buy some lobster, cook it, clean it, and freeze it for use later this year! What a plan!

LOVE champagne with a splash of pomegranite juice and a few blackberries dropped in the glass and topped off with some raspberry liquer... mmmmMMMMMmmmmm!!!!

I stand corrected.

I have been told that the horseradish in the frig is next year's seed.

You see we planted the horseradish in a container, they grew lots of greens with fairly small shoulders. After pulling up all that would pull, I dumped the container upside down and found that the plants had become root-bound, bottom of the container was FILLED with roots. and so we have a great deal of horseradish.

B already dried some [perhaps 47 times more that what we eat in a year], and she has a large quantity in the frig awaiting spring. One more year of horseradish production and we should be supplied with horseradish well into the next century.

I wonder if hogs will eat horseradish?
