Spam - a Korean Favorite

If giving a $100 box of apples isn't quite to your the liking of your special person on the harvest festival of Chusok, you can always give them a specially gift-wrapped box of SPAM. Just for the holiday, this box can be yours for about $50 - a special deal. Ever since local began getting a taste of this highly processed leftover meat from the local American army bases, they have incorporated it into their diet. In fact, outside of Guam and Hawaii, Koreans are the biggest consumers of SPAM. It has made its way into kimchi stew and kimbap rolls - two classic dishes. Fore more about the history of SPAM in Korea, visit A Short History of SPAM in Korea website.

So serve up that SPAM for your Chusok guests. Enjoy!
