Getting the urge to try Scrapple

PostBy: lsayre On: Fri Oct 14, 2011 7:39 am

I've never seen Scrapple in Ohio, but I'm getting the urge to try some. Are there any commercial brands that are good representations of Scrapple, and which offer shipment via mail, UPS, or Fed-Ex?

I had peanut butter pancakes and scrapple for breakfast at the Dutch Country Kitchen in Frackville, PA this past Wednesday. My favority over the road breakfast. I'm in Concord, NC for the NASCAR Races this weekend. Weather is very nice here. Have a great weekend one and all. I''ll be back in NY midweek.

I think Hatfield has a good flavor for a mass produced product. The texture is a little different than the homemade stuff I grew up on and the homemade scrapple was darker. Dad’s uncle was the head butcher and he liked to season the scrapple with black pepper and coriander. The flavor of the scrapple was related to the amount of beer consumed during making it. More beer yielded tastier scrapple.

I can see me making a road trip one of these days. I see signs for them all the time out there on 78, about an hour and a half drive from home but if we go to Cabalas’ they’re only about fifteen minutes away from there. I will have to try their scrapple but what caught my eye on their web site is the pickled tongue and heart, I have not had that in years. The local butchers don’t make it around here anymore. You can special order tongues but you have to cook, slice, and pickle it yourself. Heart is done the same way. If you want a good Sunday dinner stuff a heart with filling just like you would a Thanksgiving turkey and roast it. Damn, I’m getting hungry.

Yep my brother in law used to get his buddies together for the big scrapple cooking. They would start arriving around 8:00 AM and start the pot a cooking. Beer by 8:15. I really didn't know his buddies that well but by the end of the day, they called me their best friend !!!! As long as I kept bringing them the beer.

They did make some tasty scrapple though.

Just about any local butcher up that way will have some tasty food. My grandfather told of his cousin's butcher shop just outside of Oley called Christman's Meats or Deli. Right on Rt. 73 near Rt. 662. Every now and then I will make a road trip there. Souse, tripe, and pot pudding are the best. Just don't stare at the food before eating it. :fear:

And if only I didn't have this slight issue with cholesterol and triglycerides......damn, I used to piclke my own hearts especially venison hearts. Then just slice them up and put between 2 slices of bread. Or as a nighttime snack. Yum yum

Of course nothing beets fresh kidneys as long as they are prepared correctly. My secret formula.......................

The Hungarian version of the sausage made at the fall traditional pig killing is called "hurka". It's a blood sausage. Any chance it's available at the local NEPA butcher shops? If yes which one.

As a preteen kid, my friend and I, would keep the wood fire going under the huge cast iron hanging pot that provided boiler water for the pig killing. A festive fall time with lots of other home made Hungarian foods and pastries. I haven't eaten most of them in decades. The only sources I know are in the New Brunswick, NJ area. This is where many of the Hungarian immigrants settled after the 1956 revolution.

I recently had some scrapple made by a local butcher shop, they actually label it as ponhaus which is the traditional PA Dutch (German) name for it. I am pleased with it, it is not home made but is very good for bought stuff. They list the ingredients as; beef and pork stock, buckwheat flour, corn meal, pork liver, pork, beef, beef liver, salt, coriander, pepper.

I think Germans made a blood sausage too, maybe only in the old country, I don’t know. (blutwurst?) I have never seen or heard of any around here.

"Weavers of Wellsville" has about as close to homemade as I have found since we quit making it ourselves. They don't put liver in theirs so it is mild. They also have awesome bologona ahd hams.
