So what is scrapple?
It's a mush made mostly of pork, namely leftover pig parts, boiled with cornmeal and flour and formed into a loaf. Then the loaf is sliced, fried and served hot.
According to Wikipedia, the dish has its roots in pre-Roman Europe times. It was adapted by German settlers in the Mid-Atlantic region, also known as the Pennsylvania Dutch, and is most popular in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware.
Scrapple hogs the spotlight at the Apple Scrapple Festival in Bridgeville, Delaware, every October. There's more to eat than just scrapple there, such as the Little Miss Apple Scrapple Pageant, and tossing of various food items and cookware.
