York County, Pa. and its New Year’s recipes: Sauerkraut & pork, hog maw – and oysters

York countians love to eat. Any it’s not just Pennsylvania Dutch Food. Our love for seafood signals our proximity to the Cheasapeake Bay at the Atlantic Ocean. So this mammoth oyster was added in West York to the pickles, cigars, white roses, wrenches and other such symbols of towns dropped in the York County region to signal the start of the New Year.  But as these Facebook posts indicate, food is popular around here. Enjoy the six food photos and comments on those pictures below. Here’s one about the wooden oyster in West York: ‘Not a fan of RAW, but I’ll eat em if they’re steamed, baked or in soup.’ Also of interest: Check out these food-related YorkTownSquare stories and photos.
