grocery store in Natchitoches stocked it until yesterday when I bought all they had ()--so it's clearly not been dropped by Campbell's.

My wife used to buy about a half-dozen cans of Campbell's Scotch Broth whenever she came down to visit me back when I lived in New Mexico, because you couldn't find it in Boston anymore. (She figures it's been 10-15 years since she last found it in a local store.) So imagine my surprise when I found it at our Stop and Shop this afternoon!

I didn't see any Pepper Pot, but then, I wouldn't look. No tripe at Casa del Bishop, thank you.

It's here! I made a request for Campbell's Pepperpot Soup. It took a month or two, but it's here on our shelves at Tark's Market in Talent, a scant 100 miles or so from the western end of purple mountain majesties and fruited plain.

Dearfolk,
Like the tarnation idjut I can be sometimes, I had forgotten all about this thread until I scrolled down to it by accident a few minutes ago.
Let me check around in Atlanta for some and I'll post again here. I'll hunt for Scotch Broth as well: somebody's gotta carry the stuff.
My father preferred it straight out of the can at room temperature when he ate it at home. In bitter cold weather, which Georgia has blessed little of, he would lay in a supply at his office and heat it in the autoclave (an old Fischer Scientific oven from the 1930's that still worked perfectly). If y'all think I'm a character, you had ought to have met my father. Gracious, I'm getting more like him every day, and those aren't easy shoes to fill... we were very close; I was mighty lucky to have had him for a dad.

I've always been able to get pepper-pot in Cinti. / Northern KY. Always for the last 35 years. For the last several years, there was a "Made in Canada" on the label, but that has recently disappeared (mad cow?).

Last night, to assuage my curiosity and my hunger all at once, I motored over to our new, immense 24-hour Kroger store. Almost everything I imagined was there (except livermush, but I wasn't expecting that!). I managed to find quite a few on-sale items and stock up on what little food I keep at home.
Upon scouring the soup selection, though, I noticed one absence: Campbell's Pepper Pot Soup. My late Father loved the stuff, and I can't recall that I've seen it in the house since right before he died: he had just eaten the last can on hand (that wasn't what caused his death, mind you!).
I'd never thought to look for it until recently, when I came across a reference to it somewhere online (not here, I don't think) as a "beloved-of-Philadelphians" item. Now I've managed to come up with a hankering for it, and it isn't in evidence.
I haven't checked all the other large food stores here for it, but I just thought I'd throw this out. After all, this may well be my first "coined" topic, and I wanted it to be a decent one. Has anyone seen it lately in your whereabouts?
My old friend Steve was shopping synchronous to my visit. I mentioned it to him, and he thought a nonce and replied "I love the stuff, too... and I haven't seen it here lately. Maybe they quit making it."
"That's probably not so," I replied. "After all, Campbell's Soup's main plant is right across the river from Fluffia in lovely downtown Camden, New Jersey."
He nodded in earnest, then said "Well, if you find some, let me know where it is. I'm in the phone book."
Clues, anyone? Can any of you Mamas in the alley assist (I HAD to make an obscure musical reference!)?

Having loved in PA for most of my life I had a liking for Campbell's Pepper Pot. But there was a better brand that used to be carried in Foodland in Lebanon PA. That was Bookbinder's origional. Better taste and no tomatoes. I understand that is the indication of the earliest recipes supposedly because in the 1700s tomatoes were considered poisonous. Little did they know.

Campbell's is ok but Bookbinder's had a better flavor. We could get it in Lebanon County PA. No tomatoes in it, as they were considered poisonous when the recipe was supposedly origionated.

It most definitely does......I ate it for years not knowing what it was, but when I found out I was already hooked on Pepperpot Soup. Who cares? lol

Netgrocer is the best deal on the Pepperpot Soup. It's 10cts more per can than the 'hometownfavorites.com' site but the shipping is substantially less. It's like $13 shipping for 12 cans & net grocer charges $5.99 for up to $13 cans. So that's where I'm going! Thx for the input on Netgrocer.

Here's a old fashioned Pepperpot Soup recipe for anyone who wants to try it...........
Here's another "memory lane" soup--traditional in hometown Philadelphia--as evocative as, yo, a madeleine any old day. In my family--and my great grandmother was the queen of pepper pot--cognoscenti insisted on a sprinkle of cider vinegar at the table. Serve hot as a slender meal to 4 people.

• 2 quarts water
• veal or beef bone
• 2 bay leaves
• 1 dry whole red chili pepper
• 1 Tablespoon salt
• 2 whole onions
• 2 pounds honeycomb tripe, well washed (can also blanch)
• 4 potatoes, diced
• 1 teaspoon marjoram
Bring water, bay leaves, chili pepper, and salt to a boil. Add the tripe, then immediately reduce heat. Simmer for at least 2 and 1/2 hours.
Remove the veal bone, bay leaves, pepper, and onion. Take out the tripe, then slice into paper thin strips and mince crosswise. Skim the fat off the top of the stock and return the tripe to the pot with the diced potatoes. Thin with boiling water so it's nicely soupy. Allow to simmer until you're ready to serve--hours, if possible, as you want the tripe to be as tender as possible.
When ready to serve, rub the marjoram into the pot between the heels of your hands. Bring soup to a good simmer, then drop in dumplings and cook until they are done. Ladle into bowls and serve immediately with a cruet of cider vinegar on the table for final flavoring.
To make dumplings: Cut 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons of butter or lard into 1 cup of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Then stir in 1/2 cup of milk gradually. Flour hands--and roll dough into small balls.

I live about 45 min from Camden and Pepper Pot soup is stocked by all the local stores....now if anyone knows where to find Cambells Ox-Tail soup things would be perfect . It used to be fairly easy to find in import shops and is one of their biggest sellers in the UK .

I searched Campbell's web site and they gave me zero results for ox-tail soup. I tried their search engine several different ways. I am sure other companies sell what you desire.

Pepper pot soup soup reminds me of a blander menudo. It's all over C-towns in nyc. My supermarket guilty pleasure, along with Chef Boyardee's Chili Mac. Is chili mac a variation of Cinci chili?

Dearfolk,
Upon venturing to my nearby Publix store (on the Atlanta Highway) today, I found Campbell's Pepper Pot Soup in stock (no pun intended). I bought two cans, and that is not a type of bird.
I have now finally answered my own post, lo these 3-1/2 years later.

Campbell's Pepper Pot is now available in Alpharetta GA again also, both at Publix and Krogers. I have purchased it a time or two but it is a dear treat in the current incarnation. Maybe next December I will make some and try to get my family to remember Valley Forge.
