Subject: What's 'Scrapple'?????

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.

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.

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*.....

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.........................

GOTTA' HAVE SOME TONITE!!!!

Jeez, I guess I've missed it living up here where the moss grows on my north side. Plenty of very toothsome indigenous goodies, but I've eaten grits only twice (in Denver), and I've had catfish only once (love it!!), but I had that here and it was imported. Never scrapple.

Last time I had my cholesterol checked, it was 176, so I guess I have a little room to experiment. . . .

Don, Scrapple I don't know about, living here in South Carolina, but grits...that I can talk about. Being a native of the Midwest, grits don't thrill me usually. Think runny, pre-chewed corn. But in the Charleston area, they make a dish called Shrimp and Grits. A mess of fresh caught, cooked shrimp, served over a plate of grits, smothered in brown gravy. Had to had my arm twisted to try it the first time, now I have it every time I cross the state to the coast. Now that's some good eatin'! Blues

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.

Scrapple has indeed been cited as unnecessary in the human diet and perhaps even harmful in large doses over prolonged periods, but I try to remember the wisdom left to us by Redd Fox:

All those people who exercise, eat healthy diets get plenty of sleep and watch their weight are going to feel really stupid when they're lying in hospital dying of nothin'.

(Please note that, on that "Godshall's" page, there's a picture of a plate heaped with squares of fried-up scrapple, at just about the right level of browned-ness. As Spaw says, it should still be mushy inside the crisped coating!)

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

Click here for a scrapple recipe that also calls it "pon haus." I guess that must be the spelling for what my grandmother made.
This recipe gives "Pawnhaas" as an alternate spelling.
