Brands vary, so test a can first, then a case so you get what you like.

Don't store Snow's clam chowder, trust me on this one...
+1 on hominy. hardly anyone makes it from scratch anymore.
Mexican stores (or the Mexican section in groceries) have the big seasoned cans.



+1 on pickles, if you mean jars. classic preserved food.

***WHAT'S TRUE: As much of 90 percent of pumpkin sold in the U.S. (and 85 percent worldwide) is a proprietary cultivar known as a ****inson pumpkin, which are less photogenic than the type of pumpkins commonly used for display purposes.

WHAT'S FALSE: The majority of canned pumpkin is not a blend of butternut and other winter squashes.

Origin:On 23 September 2016, Facebook users began sharing an article which claimed that the pumpkin typically used in pumpkin pie is in fact a multi-squash blend containing little to no pumpkin***





Underwood deviled?
That is the one.

Just my opinion.

JDY Ten Can Soup

I make this soup with canned prep items I keep on hand all the time.

6 quart or larger pot
4 beef bouillon cubes
1 cup water
3 cans roast beef with gravy (use water to rinse cans into pot)
3 cans diced tomatoes (not stewed! yuk)
3 cans diced potatoes
1 can diced carrots
1 can young sweet peas
1 can whole kernel corn
onion flakes to taste
pepper to taste
There is usually enough salt in the canned goods, but add a pinch if you like

Empty the cans into the pot. Bring to boil stirring occasionally. Turn heat down to simmer and let simmer for two hours or so to blend flavors.

Serve with crackers.

Used to be just 10 cans, but it has evolved over time. Three cans of roast beef is better, but it is certainly acceptable with 2, and 2 potatoes.

Just my opinion.

The best 'pumpkin pie' I ever made is made with carrots. And actually looks pumpkin color, rather a vague green.

Just my opinion .

I think the trick to crisp canned hash is not to rush it, lower longer heat. I tend to rush it but better slow.

Try blue cheese crumbled on a steak. Or with crackers and red wine, cabernet sauvingnon.

This thread inspired me to stock up on various canned goodies. I think I need to work up a heartier appetite. I opened a can of Hormel tamales and heated them on a non-stick skillet. I ate some and was underwhelmed, my daughter had a couple of bites and stopped, my boy refused to touch it -- same with my wife.

It's cocktail hour here and I opened a can of Underwood Deviled Ham spread and put it on a regular Triscuit cracker. Wow! Seriously salty and lacking in flavor. Oh well, one of my cats took a keen interest in it, though. Tell you anything?

Personally, I think a can of sweet peas would make for a tasty snack compared to some of these exotic munchies. I think I'll just box up these canned "goodies" and put them into storage unless I run out of real food.

As far as canned tamales go, I prefer Nalley's and I like to smother them with chili with or without beans. YMMV

Tamales are a little dry. I like to mod them like at Tommy's in la, chili, raw onions, cheese (processed of course), ketchup, pickle chips.

I have to say that I haven't tried a canned tamale. I'm going to grab a few cans of those weird lookin things to try. I figure I will try them plain and then add a few fresh ingredients to enhance the experience.

Anchovies and other tinned obscure fish.

I get strong cravings for them from time to time.

Safeway has their brand of diced tomatoes and green chilies for $.59/10 oz can on a coupon. Also seasoned or low sodium beans.

I would say there is little to feel guilty about in those items. Keeping a well rounded pantry is just good planning IMO. In addition those types of items usually pair very well with plain rice and pasta, significantly increasing the overall usability of those basic staples.

For me it is anything Chef Boyardee (or similar). I can not help but enjoy these products and store a significant quantity, but nutritionally I would say they are "low value". I am especially guilty of not even heating them and just eating them out of the can. My wife has to leave the room when I do this as she finds it so horrifying (the peace and quite is an added bonus of this method).

Canned tamales are like Chef Boyardee canned pasta--some people are addicted to them, although they bear as little relation to real tamales as Chef Boyardee does to real pasta.

I've never much liked Underwood deviled ham or other meat spreads, either, but again, there are those who love anything with enough salt in it.

If you haven't had a given canned food before and want to try it, buy just one can. I wouldn't stock up on anything without knowing I personally liked it, no matter how many other people's cupboards it was stocked in (or how big a sale it was on).
