OK, I know what you are thinking right now. What the heck is Musubi? Maybe the next thing you are thinking is “EW…SPAM!” Am I right? The only people who might know what this is are those of you visiting this site from Hawaii or another Pacific island (I’m sure you know exactly what Spam Musubi is).
For those of you who have never lived in or visited Hawaii, allow me to enlighten you for a moment. Spam became increasingly popular in Hawaii after WWII, it was sent to the troops stationed in Hawaii and kind of spread from there. It was cheap. It was easy to cook. And it still is! It is actually one of the staple foods there still today.
