Without looking it up, do you know what scrapple is?

Supposedly it's nearly exclusive to Philadelphia, Delaware, Central and Southern Jersey, and Eastern Pennsylvania.

When I lived in Central Jersey, scrapple was readily available.

I used to eat it, until I knew what it was made of.

I had it when I visited Lancaster Penn (a brunch type buffet) It tasted pretty good and I was advised to put maple syrup on it to make it taste better.
I think it's called scrapple because it has everything in it execpt the "oink" right? LOL!!

Haha! Exactly. I didn't know scrapple was regional until I moved out west. There are certain foods, grits and scrapple, for example, that people have never heard of out here.

I never thought grits and scrapple were regional until I came out west. Both are tasty, until you know what scrapple is made out of.

Scrapple is made of hog offal which is the heart,liver and other scraps.mostly made of the internal organs which are boiled down from the bones. It makes a broth whereby the bone and fat is discarded then the pork is blended in with corn meal to make a mush and then gelled into loaves thereby adding different spices then quartered into slices after letting it cool.

Pork guts 'n' corn meal. Bleah.

Similar to that -- and peculiar to Cincinnati and vicinity -- is goetta, which is pork and pinhead oats.

I can't even watch people eat that stuff!

I used to work at a Dutch Pantry in Atlanta and they served scrapple there and believe you me that is an acquired taste. That is a food that looks better than it taste as I thought it would taste like sausage, wrong!!!!

Scrabble is not just in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, you can get it all over Maryland, Delaware, in parts of northern Virginia in some parts of West Virginia. I grew up on the stuff, and yes it is an acquired taste, one of the biggest name brands as Rapa Brand, it's located in Bridgeville, Delaware, and every year they have a Scrapple and Apple Festival. According to Rapa, here are the ingredients, pork stock, pork livers, pork fat, pork snout's, corn meal, pork hearts, wheat flour, salt, spices. What they do is grind up all the pork scraps, mix in some cornmeal and some spices.

I've never had it, but they had it in N. Virginia, where I grew up. Isn't it pork (sausage ?? maybe more) and cornmeal mixed and formed into a block?


Ewww. Just read another post. No wonder it's called SCRAPple
