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, panhossponhoss, 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.
