According to Wikpedia, Scrapple “…is traditionally a mush of pork scraps and trimmings combined with cornmeal and wheat flour, often buckwheat flour, and spices.” Today is National Scrapple Day!
In some parts of the world you can buy scrapple at the grocery store or a local butcher, while at others you might need to make your own. For those who want to try making it at home, Serious Eats gives us a scrapple recipe.

[PS – the curator of O=II lives in PA and here this food is staple and can be found in major grocery chains with the other “breakfast meats.” A couple weeks ago a package of “Turkey scrapple” was noted in said display case]
