Spam musubi, a Hawaiian type of sushi, was created during World War II by Japanese Americans living in the internment camps. It quickly became a favorite and is now a popular lunch and snack item and can be found all over the islands from restaurants to kiosks. In this Tofu ‘Spam’ Musubi: Hawaiian Sushi by Rachael Hutchings it is made by grilling or pan-frying slices of seasoned tofu, then placed on top of a ball of rice molded into a Spam-shape and wrapped with a strip of nori seaweed. The tofu doesn’t taste exactly like Spam, but it provides that salty, smoky, sweet meat-like flavor and texture of Spam.

7. Macadamia Mayonnaise

This Fermented Squash Relish by Angi Schneider is a savory relish that is reminiscent of sour pickle relish without the vinegar flavor. You can make this ferment spicy or mild, depending on what peppers you choose to use. The cloves are the secret ingredient in this fermented summer squash relish; they add a rich spiced flavor that mellows the ferment.     Reprinted with permission from The Ultimate Guide to Preserving Vegetables by Angi Schneider, Page Street Publishing Co. 2020.
