Dear Nancy,
I have a questions on 4 of the recipes from Alice in Kansas, the ones that call for Spam in them, is there anything else besides spam that can be used in it's place? I am sorry, I absolutely hate spam, so therefore I need to know, what in it's place can I use? Thanking you and Alice for letting me know if there is a substitute, that can replace the spam. Nancy, you have the greatest recipe website on the net. Been receiving your newsletter for several years. Sure do miss Judy in Alaska's recipes, sure do hope she doing much much better and will be able to return with her recipes to the newsletter.
Thanking you for all your hard work, you do for us!. Take care. Norma in Norco, CA.

Ham can be used in most recipes that call for Spam. It will have a different flavor but will work for most recipes.
