Canned ham. What the heck?

Deb Van D | May 10, 2003 04:16 PM

A friend (or so I'd thought) gave me a 5 lb canned ham. Armour. I have never run across one of these creatures and thought that I would slice it and freeze it in little portions for the odd sandwich or omelette or other ham-type candidate.

While slicing it, I also tasted it. This is not ham. This is a gooey, gelatinous, spongy, salty, tasteless kind of dense foam rubber. Is there anything that can be done with this that might render it edible? Anything at all? The texture is monumentally repulsive. The only thing I can think of at the moment is to nuke it to take away some of the water. That way it will take up less room in the garbage can.

The cats did ingest the odd pieces that came away. Maybe I have answered my own question.

Any ideas?
