National Scrapple Day
Yes, it's scrapple, not scrabble. Due to popular request (at least from one board member) I'll try to find some national days of interest.
NATIONAL SCRAPPLE DAY
National Scrapple Day on November 9th recognizes the first pork food invented in America. For those not familiar with scrapple, it is traditionally a mush of pork scraps and trimmings combined with cornmeal, wheat flour, and spices, such as sage, thyme, savory and black pepper. The mush is then formed into a semi-solid loaf, sliced and pan-fried.
Scrapple is also known by the Pennsylvania Dutch name pon haus, and the immediate ancestor of scrapple was the Low German dish called panhas. Local settlers adapted the dish to make use of locally available ingredients. In parts of Pennsylvania, it is still called Pannhaas, panhoss, ponhoss, or pannhas.
During the 17th and 18th centuries, German colonists who settled near Philadelphia and Chester County, Pennsylvania, developed the first recipes for scrapple. With such a rich heritage, many strongly associate scrapple with rural areas surrounding Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C., eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, eastern Virginia, and the Delmarva Peninsula.
Use scrapple in a sentence : I don't recall much scrapple at any tailgate I've ever attended.
Dawgs will run roughshod over the Vols scrapple defense! And our defense will make mince- scrapple out if their offense! 42-9!
Go Dawgs! Hate on Vols!
Thanks. I didn't have breakfast and now I want some scrapple.
Use Scrapple in a sentence?
We're going to make Scrapple out of the Vols this weekend!
Is it called scrapple if the main ingredient is vols? (Asking for a friend)
Cudos @donmedeiros for reviving the 'National (fill in the blank) day' posts.
Someone whose name I can't recall used to post these days and I always enjoyed those posts.
I have some friends from Pennsylvania, never had scrapple but I think I recall one of them mentioning it. I’d try it. If it’s good enough for Pennsylvania, it’s good enough for me.
It was likely donm - sound familiar ?
Considering my heritage is Norwegian, I grew up on "Morr" or more familiar term, "Haggis for the Holidays"
I did actually ended up liking it and yes my boys had to endure through it in their younger years, but look forward to Christmas Eve Extended family dinners (about 30 of us, we know how to make big families, bigger) and enjoy the traditional Viking pillaged and plunder!
Like Scrapple, we use sausage filling in a large number of variants, lots of fat, meat and yep, blood. Unlike the traditional Scrapple recipe, Norwegian versions use parts of game animals, such as venison and even antelope heart. Still it is prepared the same way and it sounds a little suspect, but when it is done correctly, pretty darn good! But never Great!
Happy National Scrapple Day, I mean Haggis Day
The VoLOL was so dismayed by the 4 TD loss to the Dawgs, when he awoke from his white lightning black out, he was frightened by the Haggis who slept next to him on his Doublewide floor!
@SWDawg68 -- That was an entertaining post scrapple to nuts.
Sure, same as pork, right? Maybe @christopherules could post that meme of the Vol fan the night before the big game laying with the...........! (don't want to spoil it if you haven't seen it!
Go Dawgs! Hate on Vols!
There is a place in Hilton Head, SC, called Hilton Head Diner (wow!) that serves it. I've had it, not bad.
Beware of any food that has crÃp in the middle of it. Had it in Philly one time and it reminded me of canned corned beef hash that had been fried, only it's pork. It couldn't compete with five day old leftover Brunswick Stew imo.
Scrapple..... It's what's for dinner!!!
Tried it once...not my cup of tea. Also tried that Northern KY/Southern Ohio dish called Goetta. Also would not recommend. Those folks up there...they eat chilli mixed with sugar and cinnamon on spaghetti noodles, don't serve grits at all, and don't know what sweet tea is.
