The ingredients of Spam vary according to variety and market; those of variety "Spam Classic" are: pork shoulder, ham, salt, water, potato starch, sugar, and sodium nitrite

Thanks Zigzag, not really the best of meats to eat is it, healthwise that is, although tasty. Roll eyes

Yes you are right it's not a very healthy choice, I haven't eaten for many year although it was a regular meal as a child.

Inspired by some recent posts, I'm trying to come up with a recipe that combines Spam and pancakes. A little experimentation will hopefully result in a suitable dish for the Feast of St Pancake on the 28th. Thumbs up

Hi all - Same shop in Clay Lane - different product - pork batches - "would you like them dipped in gravy or dry" - "would you like crackling" - my wife still dreams of these - by the way I now live in Blackpool and nobody know what a batch is let alone a pork one Smile

Hi, I am trying to find information about a particular brand of skinless sausages. As a child in the 1950's I can remember we had tinned sausages. They were in an oblong tin similar in shape to a corned beef tin. The trouble is I cannot remember who produced them. I am unable to find any information about them and wondered if anyone on here remembered them.They were really tasty as I remember although in this politically correct health conscious world they would probably be considered a health risk! Because the tin they were packed in was oblong in shape the actual sausages were square not round. Shops I remember at the time were VG stores, Woolworths, International stores and George Mason but I can't remember where they were purchased. Any information about these sausages would be greatly appreciated - manufacturer, stockists etc.

Oooh, pork batches from Clay Lane I remember them well, just the smell had your mouth watering, they also did faggot batches too, there is a really good mobile van here that does pork "rolls" maybe the name but they certainly don't taste the same.

Talking of batches, Varney’s in Sandy Lane opposite the bus depot did lovely greasy sausage and tomato batches. Hygiene regulators would have had a field day but we all survived. This was in competition to the staff canteen at the EMEB where we could get a 3 course meal with waitress service for 11d for under 18 and then 1s10d after that, 1d extra if you wanted ice cream on your apple pie!

My parents had a cooked meat shop in Swanswell Street just prewar. It was all pork batches or faggot batches and I understand very popular. My aunt was employed in the the back of the shop peeling onions and spent most of the day crying, I understand. Of course the war finished that business.
