This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com For anyone who has never tried Spam, it is a canned meat by Hormel, made of pork shoulder and ham.  It looks like a pink brick when you first take it out of the can.  A lot of people hate it, but there are a great number of fans out there.   My parents actually introduced me to Spam.  Since they were kids during World War II, they grew up eating Spam as a […]

Pine Needle Tea

January 18, 2012 aptprepper 17
