23. I had a similar experience, after avoiding Spam my whole adult life

Circumstances brought together a baked potato, canned chili, spam, onions, cheddar cheese, and sour cream; the spam was diced small and dissolved into the chili sauce, but the FLAVOR it imparted really blew me away. I mean, those other ingredients were fine without the Spam, so it was serendipitous that the Spam got included in the first place.

That was a couple years ago, and I now keep Spam on hand for when I might need to add an umami bomb to a recipe.

As a side note, I also discovered a way to easily get my "Thanksgiving Day" fix anytime--which for me, centers on the cranberry sauce: Spam plus canned jellied cranberry sauce! At first I bothered to slice and crisp fry the Spam, but soon found that even cold from the can works in this application. Sweet and salty. If you love cranberry sauce but don't have enough opportunities to eat it, try this.
