This wacky recipe was in my grandmother's recipe file. I'll have to try it sometime when I feel like doing something different with my Spam...

I had a can od spam I was looking to dress up one night so I tried this recipe. The sauce is VERY VERY sweet, but that wasnt the biggest issue, it was that it didnt really glaze the loaf at all, and just ran into the sweet potatoes and I had to use a baister to pull it out of them and we had to dip peices of spam in the sauce on our plates. Maybe if I boil it for even longer it will thicken up enough to stick to the loaf, but I think maybe chopping or slicing the spam and cooking in a shallow pan without the sweet potatoes might be better, Id also cut the brown sugar and jelly both in half next time
