    Similar to scrapple in that it contains all the leftovers of the pig, including the squeal.

    Here in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, ponhaus is the same thing as scrapple - the names are interchangeable. I suspect that further north, ponhaus might be used to indicate a product with a higher cornmeal content. Many of the scrapples that I've had from PA have less cornmeal than ours down here. They're more similar to what we call puddin'.

    When I was a kid, living on the family farm in Pa. We'd slaughter 5 or 6 hogs every year around Thanksgiving.

    My grandfather was in charge of making the sausage, and the Ponhaus....he passed away a number of years ago and took the recipe with him. Man was it good.....yup had everything but the squeal, he used to say the difference between Scrapple and Ponhaus was that the liver was used in the Ponhaus.

    I've always liked Ponhaus more then I liked Scapple.....I have a frozen chunk of puddin' meat in the freezer....maybe I'll make my weekend project trying to figure out my pap's recipe.

    NYNM,

    Thanks for bringing back a few good memories!!!!

    Suggest you move this thread over to the breakfast Forum. There are several threads over there for Scrapple & Pon Haus. Does not belong in the Hot Dog Forum. It's not a Hot Dog, Sausage or Bratwurst
