Scrapple in Texas? Fri, 03/3/06 3:28 PM (permalink)
'ello!

I'm moving to Texas from Pennsylvania next week. I was wondering if I'd be able to find scrapple in Texas or will I have to get friends and family to send care packages?

Thanks!

    railey's and tom thumb stores carry frozen scrapple but it's made in the midwest and is not as flavorful as habberset's. it beats having nothing.

        I recall that Jones scrapple is made back East.
        It will do in a pinch

                You bet! Just about everything but the squeal, and then you add some corn meal and the appropriate seasonings and spices.

                It's one of those dishes I grew up with during my youth in PA. Like a number of specialties form cetain areas, you have to grow up eating it, because I can see why it might be hard to convert too many newe fans once they reach adulthood. I love scrapple (the few times I can get it here in the Pacific NW), but recognize it never is going to appear as a mainstream grocery item.

                Another one particular to the Mid Atlantic seaboard area is salted mackeral. My mother (years and years ago)used to soak it overnight to remove as much brine as possible. But, it is still very, very salty. I coaxed my wife (born and raised in ther Portland, OR area) to try salted mackeral one time. To say that she found it "too salty" would be putting it mildly.

                    My favorite is from the same company but named - Greensboro Brand Scrapple, again only a short drive from my location as well.

                        Not that I know for sure, but I'll bet you can score some scrapple around the Hill Country, maybe Fredericksburgh.

                        Since that's the area where the original German immigrants settled (and provided us our great BBQ, smoked meats, brisket) I have a hunch there's an old school butcher that sells it (or might even make some up for you).

                            You can always make your own.If you Google "Scrapple Recipes" you'll get more info than you can stand, including places you can order it ready-made.

                            Here's a recipe:
                            Old-fashioned Scrapple

                            The name of this Pennsylvania Dutch dish comes from the chopped "scraps" of cooked pork that are mixed with ground cornmeal broth and seasonings. The squares of scrapple are fried and traditionally served hot for breakfast or brunch.

                            1 pound boneless cooked pork loin, chopped
                            1 cup cornmeal
                            1 14-1/2 ounce can chicken broth
                            1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
                            1/4 teaspoon salt
                            1/2 cup all-purpose flour
                            1/4 teaspoon pepper
                            2 tablespoons vegetable oil, or as needed

                            In a large saucepan combine pork, cornmeal, chicken broth, thyme and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat and simmer about 2 minutes or until mixture is very thick, stirring constantly. Line an 8x8x2-inch baking pan or a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan with waxed paper, letting paper extend 3-4 inches above top of pan. Spoon pork mixture into pan. Cover and chill in the refrigerator 4 hours or overnight. Unmold; cut scrapple into squares. Combine flour and pepper; dust squares with flour mixture. In large skillet brown scrapple on both sides in a small amount of hot oil. Serves 12.

                              My granny used to make real good scrapple, I always loved going to their house in the summer.

                              She would add a little kick to the mixture, yummm

                                    I agree - make your own. My mother was PA Dutch and this is how she made it and I now make it.

                                    Pahnhaus
                                    2 qt water
                                    about 2 lb. pork
                                    1 1/2 teaspoon salt
                                    Boil above gently for 1 1/2 hours.
                                    Remove meat and shred discarding all fat. Set aside. Measure broth and add water to make 2 quarts. Bring to a boil. Using a big wire whisk, stir in gradually 2 cups cornmeal, Continue stirring until thickened, add shredded meat and cook a little longer. Pour into two bread pans. Refrigerate over night. Next morning, slice and fry.
                                    My wife saves and freezes for me those fatty pork chops they hide under the nice looking ones on the tray or I just buy some pork steaks. My mother used to make a lot more than the above and used a fresh picnic usually. It is just basically boiling the pork to get a nice broth to boil the cornmeal in and then adding the pork back.

                                      Yo kentstate,

                                      I know you are a true PA Dutchman since you know the correct PA Dutch name for Scrapple which is
                                      PON HAUS! I believe the correct spelling is Pon Haus.(Source: Wikipedia). The original recipes used by the Dutch Colonists around the Philadelphia area in the 17th & 18th Century called for the Hog Offal parts of the pig such as the head, eyes, heart, liver, bladder, and other scraps, which are boiled with any bones attached (often the entire head), to make a broth. Once cooked, bones and fat are discarded, the meat is reserved, and (dry) cornmeal is boiled in the broth to make a mush. The meat, finely minced, is returned, and seasonings, typically sage, thyme, savory, and others, are added. The mush is cast into loaves, and allowed to cool thoroughly until gelled. The proportions and seasoning are very much a matter of the region and the cook's taste.

                                      Commercial scrapple often contains these traditional ingredients, with a distinctive flavor to each brand, though homemade recipes often specify more genteel cuts of pork, with a consequently blander taste.

                                        Being a Pennsylvaniac I recommend moving back to the Commonwealth. I was born + raised in Dutch country + always bought Kunzler Scrapple. Since that may not be possible make your own + reconnect with your roots! Have fun in TX. Go Steelers!

                                          Yo Sheetzaholic,

                                          You need to feed some Pon Haus to your Steelers for their game day meal.Might change their Luck! The Methane it produces will bowl over any opponent!

                                          P.S. I'm a Steelers Fan too!

                                            Foodbme - My mother used to make that stuff too = but she called it pudding. Just awful, awful stuff. She'd put in in a crock and cover with fresh rendered lard. Scoop out as wanted and fried it. I'll stick with the fried mush thankyou.
                                            BTW, a relative's friend in Japan wants her to buy her a #43 Steelers jersey. I did a quick google search and found a few places. Expensive! Do you have a good Steeler's jersery source? Thanks

                                                Yo kentstate,
                                                The way your Mother made it sounds non-traditional from the way most people make it. Did she refrigerate it after she made it?
                                                There is no such thing as a cheap place to buy NFL Jerseys because they have to pay License Fees, Royalty Fees and Endorsement Fees, Fees to cover Fees, etc on all those "Official Authentic" Jerseys. The only cheap ones are the Bootleg & Knock Off ones you buy out of the back of a truck down a dark alley!

                                                  You could have bought it at the Alamo Meat Market in Comfort (small German settled town between San Antonio and Kerrville). They spell it Panus. However I believe they will be closing at the end of 2010.
                                                  I was looking for recipes when I stumble on this site
