    and changed supermarkets just cause the kroger stopped stocking it along with Taylor Pork Roll. Can't find Taylor pork roll anywhere else but with the Ohio Amish, scrapple is still available. I almost invariably have to try to describe it to each and every cashier though.
    My doctor and cholesterol don't like it though.

    •  Where in Ohio are you at? You can get Taylor (2+ / 0-)

      Pork Roll (or Taylor Ham, if you're keeping it straight Jersey) at Carfagna's in Columbus.  I think they may also have scrapple as well, but I've never checked.

      I never saw her so pleased during my entire childhood as the day she found a specialty meat market in SoCal that sold pork roll and scrapple. She bragged on this food to such an extent that everyone in the family was ready for the Greatest Culinary Treat Ever!!!!

      Pork roll is at best okay and scrapple is a vile abomination. We were appalled that she not only liked that stuff but BRAGGED about it. It got to the point that she'd have her parents, the other East Coasters, over and they would have pork roll while the rest of us had burgers or something.

      No one would eat scrapple with her. I had her over for Mother's Day Brunch as an adult and made her scrapple. Crusty brown and still just awful. My husband ate it with her and the rest of us had bacon.

        in several places around the country.  In Cincinnati, they have Goetta while Eastern NC has liver pudding and Western NC (where I'm originally from) has livermush.  Damned shame I'm on the other side of the planet from any of 'em right now...
