    I took a food quiz the other day. It was a guess your age by how many of certain food products you have had or knew about. Amazingly they aged me to within two years of my age. Maybe it was the quiz or maybe it was some demographic cookie that gave my age too. Be that as it may one of the foods asked about was Devil Ham. I had forgotten about this stuff so I looked them up. It is still made and is also offered in a few other flavors now, like roast beef, corned beef, maple ham, chicken as well as the classic devil ham. It’s got a lot of fat and a lot of sodium in it but for an emergency canned meat it makes a nice break from Spam. I’m going to lay some in for the winter emergency buttery; with some crackers or bannock and a cup of tea it’s a fair meal.

    Grandma use to throw this on the griddle all the time. Believe more the corned or chipped beef, that with some eggs and hash browns. Good memories of that stuff. Ha.

    Same here, I'd kind of forgotten all about it. The quiz mentioned a few other common things I used to eat years ago too.

    I think Deviled Ham is more like ground noses, lips and lips from the other end. Not bad if you are hungry though. :4:

    I do believe it is made from the meat not fit for Spam :)

    I wish I had the link. It was something on Facebook, I'm sure my lost uncle from Nigeria will be contacting me any day now because I took it frankly.

    Nothing like a steaming plate of lips and snouts on a cold winter day! Wash it down with a mug of dirty water with a human hair in it. I love Camping!

    Underwood deviled ham is great, I had some sandwiches about two weeks ago. Their chicken is also good. Roast beef meh. Have never seen the other flavors. Does anyone remember Sunshine Raisin bisquits?

    I’ve never had them with devil ham in them but I suppose they could be made that way. I have never had them at all in any way, being allergic to mayo. I thought they were the yoke, mayo maybe sour cream, horseradish mixed up and re-inserted into the yoke hole in the hardboiled egg.

    Mmmm, deviled eggs still summer staple in my part of the country and devil ham sandwiches was the mainstay in my K-12 school lunch bag along with Flavor straws for the school supplied lunch milk.

    And Red hot dogs, pink sugar popcorn and woppie pies on the weekends! There was a place called Goodwins, in Auburn I think, that had the best lemonaide and Grape-nut pudding on Earth too.

    A former Spanish prisoner I believe. I have to say the letter I got years ago was believable and I can see how older people get hooked into those frauds.

    Nothings changed up here. Red snapper dogs on the grill and ice cream with Allen's Coffee Brandy syrup on top for desert is standard summer fare while Moxie and whoopie pies are still the official Maine soft drink and desert.

    I never warmed up to Underwoods when I was a kid, so it never made it into my Bonanza lunch pail, but I remember it.
    I didn't realize it was still being made.

    Ingredients
    • 8 hard-boiled large eggs
    • 1/4 cup deviled ham spread
    • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
    • 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
    • 1/3 cup finely chopped celery
    • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
    • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
    • Paprika
    This sounds familiar.
    Paprika was very common those days.
    Do not remember relish.

    my dad was a fan of deviled ham mixed with chopped pickles and miricle whip. they used to have a building off rt.128 at the dedham circle. he'd make me a sandwhich with a glass of ovaltine an saterday's for lunch. then he'd send me to brush my teeth with ipana. then we'd watch wrestling followed by liberache on our color tv. it was color as a result of the colored film over the screen.

    My wife & I still like to eat deviled ham occasionally. Mix some pickle relish into the meat spread. Lightly toast some bread & butter it. Smear deviled ham on one slice. Add a slice of tomato, a slice of cheese & lettuce. Makes a decent sandwich. :)

    Not wild about most of the Underwood stuff. Smells too much like Alpo. I am a fan of the tuna salad mixes though. Lots of interesting flavors like Sriracha! And sardines in Louisiana Hot Sauce....

    Seems I remember the saying at the Swift meat packing plant near my home in North Texas that "They use everything but the oink."

    Oh, trust me! The oink is still there. It's just ground up so fine you can't hear it with human ears. [​IMG]

    Allen's Coffee Brandy is Maine's traditional and official hard liquor since 1960 which is also known locally as "panty stripper". Considered a necessity by Down East fishermen, deer and duck hunters who are never without a Thermos full of 1/4 Brandy and 3/4 hot coffee in cool weather and upped to a 50/50 ratio when temps approaching freezing. You will seldom if ever find a Maine lobster boat without a jug of it stowed some where behind the forward bulkhead. Also a staple at college frat and High School pit parties in various mixes like Sombreros and is an excellent syrup topper for vanilla ice cream. Shelf life is about 5 years so no problem if you forget and leave it behind in your favorite duck blind or tree stand until next season.

    Im with @CSM1970 on this one.

    I grew up eating USDA food pantry canned meat. Cans were a plain label with the words PORK, BEEF or CHICKEN
    And had a picture of the animal

    Just chunks of meat in a gelatinous broth. (Chicken was a whole bird in a can) .
    Fantastic product .

    Everything else justs tastes like salty dog food to me.

    Canned fish is where its at these days!

    @Paulyseggs: Man did you just bring back some memories! My grandmother was a data entry clerk for the Johnson County Welfare Department (Indiana). She had an old Victorian house with a kitchen pantry the size of a bedroom. The shelves were lined from top to bottom with "welfare food". The department would allow the employees to take home stuff almost on a weekly basis. Stuff that was close to expiration. There were #10 cans with green beans, corn, nacho cheese dip, etc. Huge bags of flour, sugar, rice & wheat. She had a big chest freezer and a refrigerator in there as well. Boxes and bags of cereals, cheese, meats, etc. Every item had a white label with black type as to what was in the container. You could always bet that something from the W.D. would be on the menu that day.

    the bridal unit here switches out devil'd ham & tuna fish for sammitches n just plain dippin w/ Frito Scoops ;-)

    usually git one or 'tuther weekly if knot 2x/wk

    PLENTY BUENO

    as for carrying "potted" meat in your kit think about taking along some of those little packets of mayo mouseturd & sweet pickle relish like you find at the roller turd grill @ the local sleezy stop for mixin in w/ the meat

    takes the humdrum outa the stuff

    and then you can eat it on bread crackers or scoops.....

    I had plenty of it as well, it was amazing how my mom could make so many different meals with the same basic building blocks. That is what they should bring back instead of SNAP cards that get black marketed or used for crap food or cigarettes rather than real food staples.

    We always have some on hand in the pantry for back up.

    Just went and checked the pantry.
    3 Ham,
    3 Chicken,
    3 Corned beef,

    They used to make Liverwurst too. But I haven't seen that in a while.
    The Chicken on a toasted English Muffin with melted Cheddar cheese is quite tasty.

    A couple other like minded products,

    Hormel Smoked Ham.
    I cut this up into 8ths pizza style and use it in eggs. A litle goes a long way.

    The Canned Chicken Breast in water in water is also stored.
    I can pull off chicken and biscuits from just stuff in the pantry without power.
    Works well with Knorr Chicken and Rice packages too.
    Add one can of chicken, some carrots, onions and peppers.
    And have a meal in 10 minutes.

    I like potted meat. The bride, not so much.
    Something about Mechanically Separated Chicken Parts that gets to her.
    That and her lack of love for Beef Tripe.

    Andy Roy's Office Manager does a heck of a grill with Armor Vienna Sausages. I have yet to try it though.

    Spam is a staple.
    Although it is getting pretty spendy. I attribute it to people being broke.
    Last week I picked up two boneless pork loins for less per pound than Stuff Posing As Meat.

    Edit to add;
    Fieldcraft,
    I clicked on the link and see they still make the Liverwurst.


    Old story of The Liverwurst.
    The first time I ever went to Florida. I was 18. I took to girls with me. One 20, one 22. They were told prior to leaving. I wasn't stopping for anything but gas. Period. So if they wanted snacks, bring them.

    When I picked them up I had a bag of 13 Fresh Good Hardrolls and 6 cans of Underwood Deviled Liverwurst. Jeez how they whined.

    Catskills to Daytone Beach in 19.45 hours. They never did ask to go again.

    Its nauseating . the snap/food stamp program of today .

    Its a giant scam to fill the pockets of politicians and the upper crust of food and medical companies if you ask me.

    A vicious circle of dependency .

    Enslaved by the hand that feeds them and too ignorant to change

    I like it and buy some from time to time as I have to watch my sodium intake. I mainly eat it during hunting season when camped out and have taken it on overnight hikes. I like it with tomato, onion, and a mix of brown mustard and mayo on rye.
