Subject: What's 'Scrapple'?????
From: Clinton Hammond

On John Gorka's CD, "The Company You Keep", there's a song called 'People My Age', that has a line...

"Back in Pennsylvania I'd eat scrapple on toast"

What's scrapple??

;-)

Scrapple is a Pennsylvania Dutch meat product. It's prepared more or less by boiling miscellaneous pork scraps sort of to a mush, and thickening it with corn meal, then letting it set. There may be some pepper and salt or something in the mix.

You slice off slices, and fry them, sort of crisping them. Scrapple is sometimes eaten just that way, and sometimes served with syrup. It's one of those things that you either love or hate. I love it.

Thinking of how it's made, I think of it as a sort of Pennsylvania Dutch Haggis. Which I also like.

Actually, Scrapple is sort of like--well, it IS fried cornmeal mush, but with a meat content and flavoring.

A lot of the world's best foods are poor-people food in origin, or maybe I should say "needfully thrifty-people food". Scrapple is like haggis in that it's a way to get food value out of what would have been waste from the slaughtering. They're both good if you can get around your own prejudices.

Scrapple is terrific. I enjoy making it for house guests. I just make corn meal mush and add plenty of Jimmy Dean's pork sausage cooked up in small pieces. I put it in old half galon milk cartons to set up.

As Uncle_DaveO says, you just slice it and fry it in a pan. Best served with pure maple syrup.

In the bad old days, they's keep a big crock of mush ouside the back door during the cold months and add all the hog scraps into the jar. When they wanted scrapple, they'd just carve some out and fry it up.

BTW, I fry the stuff in slices about a half inch thick using a lot of oil, but bacon grease is best. It was one of those by-products of butchering hogs and indeed eaten by poor folks, but nowadays they give prizes for the best at state fairs just like they do with jerky or trail baloney.

Nowadays we have it only as a treat becasue the stuff when cooked is cholesterol hell!!!! My kids refer to it as "Pig Lips" because that's one of the things ground up in it........I never mention to most folks that they grind up the assholes too..........

I don't believe the USDA-inspected stuff has assholes in it. Faces, probably, but no assholes. When I went through a school for food inspection, they made us try unusual (to most folks here) foods. I got lots of leftover camembert because other people thought it tasted like snot. Having never eaten snot, I loved the cheese. The one thing I wouldn't touch was head cheese. They had a particular brand that had big chunks of parts, sliced. It was more of a cross-section type of thing you'd see in a lab. I didn't like the looks of the round puckered things. They were probably just noses.

As to scrapple, I only had it once. We had an office camping trip, and my boss brough some his brother had sent him. Wonderful stuff, fried in an iron skillet over a campfire!

My French-Canadian grandmother used to make something called Pfannhaus, or something like that. She was married to a German, and probably got it from his family. She died in 1958, and the recipe died with her. As I recall, it was much smoother and milder than scrapple. She'd bake it like a meat loaf, and then my mom would cut off cold slices and fry them and serve them with syrup. As I recall, it was like heaven to eat it - but I haven't had it since I was ten. Anybody know anything about it?

Wait, WAIT!!! Chorizo is lovely, delicious Mexican sausage, very spicy, but as far as I know, not the repository of all parts piggy. However, menudo has chicharones in it, which is tripe, which is pig intestines, which I could never face regardless of how great my friends said it was. It is greatly touted as a hangover remedy, but the idea of eating anything even close to pig intestines the morning after the night before made me want to hurl.

Scrapple is basically a heart attack on toast. My father would sneak it into the house every now and then and serve it to us as a great delicacy. My mother never went along with the program however, and said we might as well eat a whole stick of butter as a bite of that stuff. I remember liking it a great deal, however -- whether because it was actually that good (we lived in Oklahoma -- was the scrapple likely to be authentic?) or because my Dad thought it was great and my Mom hated it, I don't know.

What's poutin, Clinton?

Scrapple is nothing like head cheese. Scrapple is good. Head Cheese is evil. My grandmother's old recipe book had the following instructions for head cheese: Take a cows head and remove the brains and eyes. Clean the teeth. Clean out the nostrils. (I, personally, am not brushing a dead cows teeth, nor am I blowing its nose). Boil the head. Scrape off the meat and the gelatinous crud (my words, not the cookbook's). put it in a loaf pan and let it set.

Sounds yummy, huh? It's really foul. I guess it's called head cheese because calling it what it is - cow face- isn't as appealing. There's also something called souse that's similar, but with hot seasonings like cayenne pepper.

Parks brand scrapple has on the list of ingredients: pork snouts, ears and tails, corn meal and spices.

It's all ground up so, mercifully, you can't identify the ingredients. And it's good, if not necesarily good for you.

I'll field this one for Clinton. Poutine originated in Quebec and is another heart attack on a plate. French Fries doused with Gravy and Cheese Curds. It's a gooey mess that is about as unhealthy as anything ever invented, but I must admit, I like the stuff.

I'm with ya Spaw, I LOVE scrapple!!! My dad used to say, "Ya got your hame, bacon, roasts, pork chops, pigs feet, and everything thats left is ground up into scrapple. Hey, it's not good for you but it's no worse than bacon or sausage.

For the scrapple lovers, next chance you get, get a nice big 'ol biscuit, fry up some scrapple, scramble up some eggs, throw it all on the biscuit with a slice of cheese and enjoy one of the best breakfast sandwiches known to man/woman!!!! Of course, if your watchin your weight, skip the cheese....*BG*.....

Great, I just made myself hungry....

Don Firth: You're right; scrapple doesn't look or taste at all like Spam.

As for the taste of scrapple: some scrapple is absolutely heavenly, and some is absolutely horrible. It depends a lot on the spices used. There's one local brand here in Pennsylvania called "Hatfield" (the meat-packing plant is in the town of Hatfield, but I don't know if the company is named after the town or after the family for whom the town is named); it's pretty highly flavored, and is my personal favorite. Yum!! I, too, eat it only once in a while, as a treat (and I do mean treat!).

A couple of years ago, I had a co-worker whose parents run a farm upstate. I mentioned that I love scrapple, at which my co-worker recoiled and talked a bit about the scrapple-processing done by her folks. She brought me a sample brick to take home and try... and it was just god-awful, fatty stuff with no flavor whatsoever. No wonder she hates it! I didn't have the heart to tell her that I hated it, too, but I never asked her for her family's scrapple again!

By the way, although some folks simply fry the square that they've sliced off the scrapple brick, others ? like my family ? scramble it in the pan as it fries. I think it tastes a bit lighter this way; certainly the texture is less dense.

One of the local Philadelphia radio stations held a "Scrapple-Fest" for a couple of years, and put out a CD of songs written by local performers on the subject, called "Scrapple Rocks". Alas, the radio station has changed its format and has fired the scrapple-loving host of the Fest, but scrapple still rocks!

CH... you actually eat PQ Poutine on toast and charge others with "eating anything" ?

I say "PQ" Poutine because around here (Maritime Canada) Poutine is a dish made of mushed potato, formed into a ball, with, maybe/maybe not, pork and/or pork scrucheons in the centre. It is often served with brown sugar, molasses or maple slurpup... or just some salt and pepper.

Wyowoman, actually tripe is from the stomachs of cattle or other ruminants (probably 99% of the time cattle). Since pigs aren't ruminants, their stomachs don't have the proper texture. That said, menudo is another wonderful dish that's a heart attack waiting to happen. The best usually has a thick layer of cholesterol laden liquid fat which rises to the top of your bowl. I probably get a bowl about once every ten years, and it's heaven!

Over the years I've tried maybe 15-20 different scrapples. My favorite is a small butcher in Millersburg Ohio who for me at least, has it just right. I buy 3 loaves and divide them, slice them down and freeze them. It does quite well frozen but you need to slice it first. It cooks fine but can be a bit crumbly if you try to slice it after freezing.

There is someone over in PA, Martin by name, that sells a scrapple through Yoder's that is a part beef scrapple. It's different. Obviously a different flavor but it's almost too lean. We ate one loaf but I think I'll pass on any more. I've tried several homemades from real good to real bad but the worst is that awful stuff they are selling in large grocery stores, frozen in a small loaf. I guess they're trying to get the "Scrapple Message" out to the people or something, but it's really bad stuff.

I like dipping mine in my eggs as you do toast. I cut at about a half inch so I can fry it very crispy on the outside and still mooshy in the middle.........................

Well, it's been 30 years since I ate any critter that walks on 4 legs, but I'm hear to tell ya' that of all the meaty type foods, scrapple is the one I miss tghe most. I know it's 90% cormeal, 5% spices and only 5% cooked down pig parts but I'm still not eatin' no pigs. Period. When they come out with turkey scrapple, I'll eat it.

Funny thing about scrapple though. Down South they say that scappple is yankee food but they eat something called livermush. Now it cooks up just like scrapple, looks and smells like scrapple but according to them folks it ain't scrapple... Hmmmmm?

I say if it looks like scrapple, smells like scapple and quacks like scrapple, it's probably, ahhhh, scrapple.

BTW, if they could figure out how to make scrapple out of apples you'd get apple-scrapple... Nevermind.

Here's a little solid substance for a thread short on it.

Great-Grandmother Harbaugh (Pennsylvania Dutch) had this in her White House Cook Book copyright 1888 by R.S. Peile p. 133.

SCRAPPLE

Scrapple is a most palatable dish. Take the head, heart and any lean scraps of pork, and boil until the flesh slips easily from the bones. Remove the fat, gristle and bones, then chop fine. Set the liquor in which the meat was boiled aside until cold, take the cake of fat from the surface and return to the fire. When it boils, put in the chopped meat and season well with pepper and salt. Let it boil again, then thicken with corn-meal as you would in making ordinary corn-meal mush, by letting it slip through the fingers slowly to prevent lumps. Cook an hour, stirring constantly at first, afterwards putting back on the range in a position to boil gently. When done, pour into a long, square pan, not too deep, and mold. In cold weather this can be kept several weeks Cut into slices when cold, and fried brown, as you do mush, is a cheap and delicious breakfast dish.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

I know I've probably contributed to previous threads on scrapple, but I just want to join in the chorus of Yum!s. I love scrapple with a bit of maple syrup drizzled on it - it's that exquisite combo of savory, sweet and grease. We have an Amish/Mennonite farmers' market that sells the best meats I've seen in a long time, and they sell both regular AND turkey scrapple (my husband and I find the turkey scrapple too scary a concept to even think about - I mean, turkey lips....?)

I lived in East Tennessee for 2 years in grad school, and avoided grits like the plague, due to unfortunate childhood memories of lumpy Cream of Wheat. When we went to Grand Bahama this spring, grits and souse were prominant items on every breakfast menu. I got the courage to try the grits again, and found that I loved them - especially with butter, canned milk, salt and syrup on them. I never could bring myself to try the chicken or pork souse for breakfast, but I had the boil-fish one morning - big chunks of grouper or snapper, onions, potatoes, garlic and hot chiles all boiled together. It tasted great with the grits!

Use product of your endeavour to repair the holes in the walls and eat the box with whatever flavor you desire. the nutritional content will be the same and it will taste better.

Ahh, we're getting into brains!

Evansville, Indiana has two great gastronomic specialties: Open pit barbecue and brain sandwiches! I had never been much for barbecued ribs until I moved to Indiana and discovered open pit barbecue as it is done in Evansville. Usually the ribs are covered with a lot of excessively gloppy sauce. Not the Evansville way. The restaurant will usually give you a little pot of extra sauce if you want it, mild or hot, but just as they come to the table is fine with me! Or if you're not into ribs you can get what they call "pit slices"--sliced barbecued pork--but that's passing up the fun of eating from the bones with your fingers. You also CAN (but I don't understand why anyone would) get the shredded, sloppy stuff some people call barbecue.

Now brain sandwiches: I understand that they are not for the faint of heart, but they are great stuff! The brains are rolled in egg and breaded, then fried. Wonderful!

Bobert, you are quite welcome. I used to live in the town next to Telford (and I do mean "next" ? cross the street and you've changed towns), so I've seen locally-produced turkey scrapple in the local supermarkets up there. In fact, that whole area is rife with meat-packing plants. I can still smell the unmistakable aroma of the trucks full of pigs headed for the plant down the street on those sweltering August days... ahhhh, memories... *G*

Anyway, I sure hope you like Godshall's turkey scrapple, especially if you're really buying TEN POUNDS of the stuff!!! Remember what I said earlier about different companies' scrapple having different flavors, different recipes for spicing, etc.? I've found only one other turkey-scrapple-seller on the internet, but there must be more out there. If you're interested in comparing flavors, that other seller I found is Eberly Poultry, a company near Ephrata, PA that specializes in organic products (free-range chicken and such): http://www.eberlypoultry.com/index.htm (it doesn't appear that they ship products to customers; however, there is a multi-state "where to buy" list).

Actually, I was surprised to learn from this thread that scrapple was not an exclusively Philadelphian culinary tradition, like cheesesteaks, hoagies, soft pretzels, and poi. (Aha--just wanted to see if you were paying attention!) Never ate the stuff myself, but I remember they served it at Horn & Hardart's restaurant on Roosevelt Boulevard (yes, I know H&H started in New York, but it was also a Philadelphia tradition...)

Speaking of junk food, I'd like to add to your list of exclusively Philadelphian culinary traditions the inimitable Tastykake. IMO, Tastykakes don't taste quite as good now as they used to when no one outside the Philly area had ever heard of them, but they're still pretty darned good. I haven't quite forgiven them, though, for changing the name "Tandy Takes" to "Kandy Kakes".

Although I have lived Tennessee for a long time, I am from the Delmarva peninsular, where scrapple is great treat. You can make it from hog head, but you can also use a pork butt or any other piece of pork with bone. Boil off the meat meat til it is almost falling from the bone, cool and chop fine. Measure the meat, add two parts cornmeal for each three parts meat. We season it with salt, pepper, sage, nutmeg and cayenne. Add all back into the broth and cook til it gets thick, about an hour, stirring all the while. Pour into loaf pans an chill. Unmold as you need it, slice and fry. You can also use oatmeal instead of cornmeal. Haslet Stew is made at "Hog Killing Time," Take the the heart, liver and lights(lungs) and cut up cut into dice, dredge in flour, fry in lard with onions, reduce heat add water and simmer for several hours. This was my Daddy's favorite food.

Sharon, do you know I can buy TastyKakes in the KTA Supermarket here in Hilo? I agree, they should never have changed TandyTakes. My favorites were cherry and peach pie, and Butterscotch Krimpets. By the way, for my birthday party in my first year of med school at Hershey, one of my classmates gave me a special present: a Nestle's Crunch Bar! (She had to go all the way to Harrisburg to get it.)

One of our f/Friends used to bring it to Christmas breakfast at meeting and there was a lot of very unQuakerly elbowing and shoving to get to it.

I know better than to eat it often but I do when I can get it. Somebody mentioned Mexican chorizo, which sounds like a good idea for a variation . . .





I don't know how everyone's bitching about grits. There's nothing offensive about grits (except when people get snotty and call them "polenta"). Little bit of salt, little bit of pepper, maybe some garlic and shredded sharp cheese, or an egg on top. Good stuff. It amazes me that Midwesterners, for all they surround themselves with corn, can't make a decent bowl of grits.

Pork, oddly enough, is considerably less fatty than beef--as long as you trim it. Most of the fat is in a single thick layer, rather than marbled thoughout. And in any case, whatever fat is in the pork by-products (read wast and scrap) used is considerably diluted by the large amount of cereal used.

I'm not one to wantonly diss honest food, especially honest food which has come out of poverty. Some of the best food in the world falls into this category (for instance, I'll not hear a word said against brawn, or "head cheese" - lovely stuff).

But scrapple is vile. The texture is kind of soft and mushy. The taste is indescribably awful. To smell it cooking makes me feel ill. It's like Irish white pudding gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Sounds like you're basing your opinion on poorly-prepared scrapple. If you ate scrapple that had a soft and mushy texture, like pudding, it was not properly prepared and must have been disgusting. No wonder you don't like it.

There is a range of both quality and spicings across the various brands that are available around the Philadelphia area, and butcher shops each have their own recipes. If it is quality scrapple and is properly prepared, it's delicious. A whole lot of people agree.

My French-Canadian grandmother used to make something called Pfannhaus, or something like that. She was married to a German, and probably got it from his family. She died in 1958, and the recipe died with her. As I recall, it was much smoother and milder than scrapple. She'd bake it like a meat loaf, and then my mom would cut off cold slices and fry them and serve them with syrup. As I recall, it was like heaven to eat it - but I haven't had it since I was ten. Anybody know anything about it?

Joe,

I've got a great Pennsylvania Dutch cookbook that parenthetically includes the Pennsylvania Dutch names for each of the recipes. There is a recipe for Scrapple (Panhaas), so I'm gonna guess that it was scrapple. Are you sure she baked it? This recipe calls for it to be cooked stovetop into a mashed potato-like consistency, then poured into loaf pans, allowed to cool, then covered and refrigerated overnight. Next day, turn out the loaves and cut into thick slices and fry in a hot, greased skillet. If your grandmother's homemade scrapple was smoother and milder than commercial scrapple, that would be because she ground the meat finer and spiced it milder...probably her secret, or her in-law's secret recipe. You might try to locate your grandmother's cookbooks...a family member may have them. My brother has my grandmother's cookbook that I know has a scrapple recipe in it.

By the way, Pennsylvania Dutch aren't Dutch at all...they're Deutsche (German).

Way back at the beginning of this thread many years ago, I sugggested and still do now that you slice regular pork scrapple a little thick, cook it in bacon grease (oils are okay but bacon grease is the thing!), and get it crispy on the outside and soft in the middle.

I've been eating this stuff all my life on a regular basis and finding good scrapple is getting harder and harder.

Actually, we're both right...Livermush definitely has a liver taste, but the recipe I referred to earlier in my Pennsylvania Dutch Cookbook has as for its meat ingredients:

1 pork heart
1 pound meaty pork ribs
2 pounds pork liver

I admit I've never made this recipe, but I have to believe it has to have a distinct liver taste. I'll also admit that the commercial scrapple from around Philadelphia (Parks, Hatfield, Habersett have been mentioned here) don't have the distinct liver taste of livermush. But when I've served scrapple for my southern visitors, they call it livermush. When I've had it, I think of livermush as scrapple made predominantly with liver.

I've eaten scrapple all my life, too. And I'm Pennsylvania Dutch. My dad would fry it up for Sunday morning breakfast. I do the same for my kids. My grandmother's cookbook recipe for scrapple calls for scraping out two split hog heads (I remember reading that as a boy)...I expect that recipe would taste different still, but I don't think I'll try that one. I've enjoyed a wide variety of scrapples.

And I think this thread is motivating me to make homemade scrapple from the recipe I have, from: Pennsylvania Dutch Country Cooking by William Woys Weaver published by Abbeville Press. If I make it, I'll report back here with the results.

Pretty much the same experiences Greg. Now in the Swiss/Amish country of east Ohio I will never know why we call it "Krepples."

In any case, I don't think I've ever met a Scrapple I didn't like, but the quality varies. The "All Beef" loaf I got from someone in PA. but I can't remember the name......Martin Farm maybe? It was pretty good but there was just something almost too lean, too meaty. I have never tried the turkey version that Bobertz got though.....Somehow I just can't imagine it. On the other hand I have used a lot of turkey sausage so why not?

First and only time I had it was once when my whole office went camping. I woke up one morning to the sound of loons and the smell of this stuff frying. I was starving, it smelled amazing and it tasted wonderful. I should point out that it was home made by my boss's brother. He made it every year and sent it to my boss. I've tried the Jimmy Dean stuff. On a scale of 1 to 10, with my boss's scrapple being a 10, Jimmy Dean would be about 4. Edible, but nothing like the rapturous experience of eating a slab of carefully seasoned ground-up critter parts in a campground on the edge of a lake.

Well, that depends. Kraft mayonnaise does, actually. *Gag*

Lighten up, chap - it's only food. It cannot feel. It has no self-esteem to be damaged.

In the UK, there's an ad campaign for Marmite (yeast extract - another abomination). The whole campaign - which is quite funny - is based on the fact that some people love it, and some people really, really hate it. So the ads either end with the words "My mate Marmite" or "I hate Marmite". Scrapple similarly divides people, it seems.

Just to prove I'm not castng nasturtiums at Pennsylvania Dutch cookery in general, I love a good shoofly pie. Apple butter is the food of the gods. And they make the best baked ham in the whole world round Lancaster, PA.

My adopted Mom, who just passed away at 100, was from a large Mennonite family based in rural Kansas. Their ancestors had come from Holland and Germany. Her particular group came from a region south of present day Ukraine, formerly part of Prussia. They adapted their folk recipes to utilize locally available produce, etc. Scrapple is best known as a Pennsylvania Dutch specialty, but it is simply part of the "nothing wasted" school of cooking common to most Mennonite communities of an earlier era.
