    Fruit Cocktail-SPAM Buffet Party Loaf

    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    1 (15-ounce) can Del Monte fruit cocktail, drained (reserve syrup)
    2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
    2 tablespoons vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
    2 (12-ounce) cans Spam luncheon meat, very finely chopped
    1/2 cup celery, very finely chopped
    1/4 cup green olives, very finely chopped
    1/2 cup Miracle Whip
    1 teaspoon prepared mustard
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    5 lemons
    Additional Miracle Whip


    Arrange drained fruit cocktail in 9-by-5-by-3 inch loaf pan. In top of double boiler, mix reserved syrup with gelatin, vinegar, cinnamon, and cloves. Place over hot water and stir until gelatin dissolves. Carefully pour 1/2 cup of gelatin mixture over fruit cocktail. Place in pan in refrigerator and chill until gelatin has thickened but is not set.

    Mix Spam with celery and olives. Mix Miracle Whip with mustard, salt, and remaining gelatin mixture. Add Spam mixture to Miracle Whip mixture and blend well. Spread over fruit cocktail. Chill until firm, at least 4 hours.

    For garnish, make lemon cups by halving lemons, slicing off ends (so lemons will stand up), and scooping out pulp. Dip cut edges of lemons in paprika. Fill cups with Miracle Whip and sprinkle lightly with additional paprika.

    To serve, unmold loaf onto large platter and surround with lemon cups. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
