There are a number of recipes on the Internet for regional variations of scrapple, but the Pennsylvania Dutch version is supposed to be the most authentic.
Bear in mind before you begin, though, that the name comes from the word scraps, in other words, the parts left over when you’re done making ham, pork, bacon, chops, ribs, and Spam.
True scrapple recipes are not for the squeamish, you’ll have to be willing to handle snouts, brains, and hearts.
One recipe starts, “Begin with two pig heads”, but there are also some upscale scrapple recipes that use more traditional supermarket pork parts.
Scrapple, also known as pon haus, was the first pork food invented in America.
The first recipes were created by Dutch colonists who settled in Pennsylvania in the 17th and 18th centuries.
