Cuisine of my hometownPaul, · Categories: General
Just to show that I have no place criticising Iowa, I improved on the Spam.com factiod that my hometown Charlotte was full to the brim with Spam eaters when I found this bit:
Charlotteans consume more Beanie Weenies than anywhere else in the world, boast the highest per capita consumption of Spam and the highest per capita consumption of ketchup in the world
As the Carolinas’ largest urban area, it continues to be a culinary forerunner.
A favorite Spam church potluck recipe from Charlotte involved Spam topped with a heavily sugared pineapple slice then baked in the juice from the pineapple can and that from a jar of red candied cherries. The cherries were later used to fill the pineapple holes. Yumm good! I found a variation of that sugary treat as the winner of the 2004 Dixie Classic Fair; the variation is a casserole (of course).
