      Uncooked Scrabble? We like to play Scrabble. What does this have to do with food?

        It's kind of like the Penn Dutch equivalent of a tripa taco run through through a blender and then fried. Wicked good, partner. When I don't bring it back from my mom's, I order it on line. I'll try and find the site. There is also a recipe on line, just for nice.
        Say now.

        Though I LOVE scrapple - I have never seen it north of Southern New Jersey.

            OK, scrapple may be the Pennsylvania equivilent of haggis, but my father in law is a die hard PA Dutch food lover (89 years old) and I thought it would be a nice addition to the Mother's day brunch we are planning (actually, I like it too). I found a place in PA that would ship it, but too much $$. Thanks for the Jones tip, but if it ain't PA Dutch, I think I'll just try and make it myself.

              Love to see the recipe jkuhlen! My understanding is that it is ground up pork product mixed with cornmeal, hickory and other spices - not to be confused with Pork Roll - which is ground up pork product not mixed with cornmeal!

              You might try a store like C-Town (New Britain, Hartford, etc.) or Save-A-Lot (New Britain, Hartford, E. Hfd, Meriden). I may have seen it there....or it could have been chittlins or chitterlings or something else in the freezer section unidentifiable to me! Good luck...

                the stop and shop in milford on bridgeport avenue has it- in the freezer section with the breakfast sausage- on the bottom shelf.

                Thanks for the tips. I ended up buying the Jones scrapple at Stop & Shop instead of making it myself (I had enough to do). It is tough to fry the slices and keep them in one piece (non-stick would have been a good option), but it tasted great! My father in law was thrilled, and said he was going to S&S on his way home to get some for himself.
                Never would have found it without CH. Thanks again.
