A last word of advice on scrapple

From my sister Carol (who affectionately calls herself “Not quite the oldest Sis”), here is a piece of decent advice if you must eat scrapple.

Don’t think about it….just eat it! Louise (another sister) is right about thin and crisp. Some diners serve it much too thick, and that is where most non-lovers most likely try it.

I’ll leave you to it. Happy eating!

About Joan

My name is Joan and I'm a lifelong Yorker. Throughout high school and college, I swore I was getting out of here as soon as possible. Now, a few years later, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be. I love my town, and I hear every day from readers who love their towns, too. So please, connect with me and let's share what makes life in York County great. I'm here to help you enjoy this place as much as I do!

    That plate looks quite appetizing! Short background, I was born and raised in York, graduated from Central and now live in Austria. I love this blog to keep me somewhat up to date on York. To the ‘meat’ of this post…Believe it or not, even though the German settlers are credited with ‘bringing’ the scrapple recipe with them, no one, and I mean NO ONE here in Austria or those I know in germany for that fact, know of or even ever heard of scrapple. I even mentioned pon haus and they looked at me like I was crazy. This being said, I finally found a few good recipes to try and after my first batch, actually have some converts here. Amazing isn’t it? A Yorker, introducing an assumed German dish to German/Austrian folks…and they love it!!! Thanks for the blog. I think I am going to make my next batch this weekend and eat it the way it is supposed to be eaten, thin, crispy and with King Syrup!
