If you've got to ask what's in it...

You don't want to know...
Most of you who know me know I was born and raised in Philadelphia and lived there most of my life until 1998 when I moved to Arizona. I really haven't been back except for a few short visits over the years, and besides my family, the only thing I really miss is the food.
Some things you can only get in the Southeastern Pennsylvania/South New Jersey area... Like Scrapple.
I love the stuff. Don't ask what's in it, just eat it. It's good. Because if you ask, you'll lose your appetite. Along with Cheesesteaks and REAL Italian Hoagies, for the longest time you couldn't get this yummy stuff anywhere else. Or so I thought.
So what do my eyes see when I was at the local grocery store here in Florida yesterday?
Yep... Scrapple! I got some and now it's in my freezer until I can remember how to cook the stuff.
Now all I need to find is some Taylor Pork Roll and I'll be a very happy camper indeed!

I can't even BEGIN to list the things that I miss when out of my home area--beginning with Verner's Ginger Ale and ending with our local brand of milk! I won't even LOOK at, much less eat, any of the processed meat products (sausage, etc) that ISN'T made by our local meat processing plant. And my youngest is the same. It is REAL easy to get her Christmas gifts--I just have to buy her local food! :D

I love, love, love scrapple!!!!! I like it thin and crispy so I slice thinly and fry or broil it. Yum, yum.

So what's in it?

Honkeie: foodporn good!

CMK: That's not so strange. When I moved to Arizona, the butter there, well, just didn't taste right. We're all accustomed to certain things.

Leazwell: It is yummy, isn't it? My biggest question now is should I thaw it out, just slice off what I'm going to cook and re-freeze the rest...

BD: You really don't want to know... ;)
