Have You Tried 'scrapple?'

Tue Jan 08, 2008 10:47 am

I had the, uh, joy... of eating scrapple last weekend. It's kind of a cornmeal and pork scrap mush that's formed into loaves and fried. The taste is unique. The consistency is also unique. Extremely freaking unique. All in all, I kinda liked it.

Has anyone else tried this hallmark of American cuisine?

With grits and eggs too! Some scrapple is better than others.

The Pennsylvania Dutch make the best scrapple, and they're only about an hours drive from me. Zinns Diner is justly famous for their Penn Dutch food, including locally made apple butter and scrapple. All yummy stuff, but forget about those grits. Only thing they're good for is hanging wallpaper and filling in small nicks on propellers. On second thought, grits probably have excellent anti-diarrheal properties.

( I know my remarks on grits are going to start an uproar from the South, but read what Lewis Grizzard had to say about them in his book "Don't sit under the grits tree with anyone else but me". Flame suit on and tightened, so flame away)
if ya gotta crash, hit something soft and cheap!

My parents were once driving from CT to GA and my father, having some perhaps romantic vision of grits (too many cowboy films or something) ordered them for breakfast at some diner in NC or SC..... and wished he hadn't.

The best piece of food I have ever eaten. Scrapple is a well known meat here in southern DE with 3 scrapple manufacturers. I think its funny that people will try it if you don't tell them the ingredients, but once you do they'll never try it again.

I agree, they're like boiled sawdust...

I heard the manufacture of scrapple involves the use of a Bobcat front-end loader. I am all-set with scrapple...

No worse than what's found in hot dogs, sausage, etc.

I like it, it's one of those foods I make a point to eat whenever I get back east, along with cheese-steaks, Sicilian pizza, hoagies, etc. Often imitated, but never duplicated.

Shoo-Fly Pie is my favorite ever since I was a kid. My mom was from Pennsylvania Dutch country so I grew up with a lot of those foods. Funnel cakes are good too.

Never had scrapple, never heard of it before. Is it one of those things like haggis, you ask someone to try it, it tastes good, then tell them the ingredients, and then they hate it?

I love haggis....

My dad grew up in Virginia, and his family ate scrapple at times. He remembers rather liking the stuff. I've never had it - my mom is absolutely disgusted by the idea and refuses to have it in the house, although as my dad always reminds her, she's never actually tried it.

Although it looks and sounds less than savory, I think anyone who has ever eaten at Mcdonalds doesn't really have a leg to stand on with those arguments.

Scrapple is probably a lot more healthy than anything that comes from McDonalds.
