Scrapple – Love It or Hate It?
It's an odd grey color, it's sold in the shape of a brick, you probably don't know (or don't want to know) what's in it, and you either love it or hate it... scrapple!
Scrapple -- the culinary delight that's a staple of South Jersey and our region.
For people that don't know what it is, I've always described it as, "everything that's not good enought to put in a hot dog."
Scrapple is just that: scraps of meat that are left over from butchering. Instead of these animal parts going to waste, they're all squished together into the familiar brick-shape you see in your local supermarket. Typically, scrapple is cut into slices, much like a loaf of bread, and sometimes it's first coated in flour, then usually fried.
Depending on where you are from, you may either love scrapple or hate it. I grew up in Williamstown: I love it. My wife, who is from Ocean County and never really heard of it when she was growing up, hates it (that's the nicest way I can say that).
So, take our poll... scrapple: do you love it or hate it?
