    A neighbor of ours treated us to some Scrapple a few years back.  Love that with the fried "taters"!  Yumm

  6. Scrapple is typically made of   hog offal, such as the head, heart, liver, and other trimmings, 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 to the pot and seasonings, typically sage, thyme, savory, black pepper, and others are added. The mush is formed into loaves and allowed to cool thoroughly until set. The proportions and seasoning are very much a matter of the region and the cook's taste.

    A few manufacturers have introduced beef and turkey varieties and color the loaf to retain the traditional coloration derived from the original pork liver base. Home recipes for chicken and turkey scrapple are also available

    This is what you will find if you google Scrapple.

    Happy smoken.

  8. Pretty much. But it sure is good. I have never had it made with venison. But I know it would be good.

    Thank You Kat !!

    Bear
    Thanks T&B !!

    This batch was made over near the Delaware River, by a bunch of guys who each contribute some of their Deer parts. They all help stir it & pour it and everything. Then it gets divvied up into the amounts ordered before the cooking started. Two of my BILs were in that bunch.
    One of the Great things about living in SE PA is that this is the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country. All of our grocery stores sell Scrapple & most of the restaurants serve Scrapple daily.
    Some people put syrup or Apple Butter on it.
    Personally, if it's not very good Scrapple, I put a little ketchup on it, but if it's good Scrapple, I just sprinkle a little Salt & Pepper on it.

    I haven't helped for many years, but that sounds in the realm of what is generally used, except when huge amounts of Venison is tossed in.

    Bear
    Sometimes the Oink gets thrown in too.

    Bear
    Definitely is good, unless the makers don't know what they're doing. Ran into one of them years ago!!!

    No thank you.  Went to sleep last night thinking of your scrapple.  Now you know how gray hair effects you.
