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.

Its above the line because scrapple, like possums, holds a special place in Mudcat lore. So do grits. And Ruth, you need to read through all the Marmite vs. Vegemite threads around here. As you say, they too have a love/hate thing going. I love it, prefer Vegemite myself, but have both in the house and I'm an American for chrissakes!

On the other hand, I see you have no taste at all(:<))

"I've had food I've not enjoyed, but I never had to insult it.

Does mayonaise make you angry?"

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.

Am I forgiven?

Jeri, I think that's because camp cooking done well in iron skillets and Dutch Ovens makes everything taste really special.....I'm sure that was excellent scrapple but frying up anything out there in the fire with the woods and lake smells, the cool dampness, etc.........yeah............

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.

Livermush an' scrapple is teo different things... You go into a Harris-Teeter in North Caroline and they are both sold in the same palce in the store but one is lievermush and the other scrapple...

I use to have a friend who made scrapple and he used parts of the pigs head to make it... Livermush uses the liver & is distinctly darker... And meatier...

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?

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.

Sure sounds crunchy to me. Sounds like you were made to eat poorly prepared scrapple as a child and it scarred you for life. You are not dissing scrapple; you're insulting it. I've had food I've not enjoyed, but I never had to insult it.

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.

Actually G, I've had both and they're different. Livermush distinctly tastes of liver. I like it but it ain't Krepples. Also had some all beef scrapple which was kinda' weird.

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.

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).

I had all but forgotten this thread but now that it is back, the Godshall's turkey scapple was delicious... Might of fact I reckon I ougtta order me up another 10 pounds...

Now the way to cook it is fried in a cast iron fry pan... Alll you gotta do is thrown jsut a little butter or olive oil in the bottom so9 as to keep it from stickin' to the pan... Now here's the way I like it: thinly sliced and fried until it's crisp on both sides...

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.

"Its not either of the above....."

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.

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.

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.

I'm originally from PA. and live in MO. now. They have a brand of scrapple in PA called Habbersett's, that I think is the best tasting brand I have ever tasted. Just thought you might like to try it.

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.)

Aloha,
Mark

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.

Well Sharon, I buy my regular scrapple in loaves of about 5 pounds each and I use two loaves about every 6 months. Now if it wasn't such a fat/cholesterol disaster, I could easily go through 10 pounds in a month and never tire of it.
