FOOD Last night I ate 9 year old Hormel chili

We had 12 year old Spam the other night with eggs and we're still kickin'. It had gotten pushed back behind something that seldom gets moved and I found it in the process of a kitchen re-organization. The can was perfect, opened it and smelled it, smelled like it always does. Sliced it up real thin and fried it real crispy. Yum-O!

I can remember before they put those dates on every thing. We had sense enough not to eat anything out of a swelled can. At my house we refuse to look at dates except to laugh at them. My kids throw out milk if it's a day out, I still use the sniff test. When I worked at a grocery store in 60s they let us buy bent cans for 10 cents each. I wish we still had them available to us.

Turret Buster should get some kind of achievement award. Maybe the Brown Toilet Bowl Award. That is an achievement but I have to say I just don't like canned chili any age. Last week we did prepare stuffed green peppers with canned tomatoes we canned eleven years ago. Doing just find. So far.

The key thing was "heat it to a boil." If you had not, I would have not known where to send the flowers. :D

Back in my wilder days in the 1970's I got drunk with a friend I had known for years by then. He convinced me to join him in eating cheap chili, something like a store brand, only worse, along with scrambled eggs. Oh boy, we then had a flatulence contest, which is the kind of thing you do when you get out of the Army and live with a high school buddy for a month or so. So, yeah if you hadn't cooked it to a boil, and then ate scrambled eggs with it, well then I would be really impressed. :applaud:
