A GLIMPSE OF PHILLY

Time for another glimpse of Philly.


Well, they aren't Beagles.


This is scrapple.  A Philadelphia delicacy.  Mostly it's fried like this and served at breakfast.  It is called scrapple because it is made from -- well, uh, scraps left over from other pork products.  Like...  well, ears, snout, etc.  You either love it or hate it.  I'm not fond of it although I eat it, but Joe and my sister love it.  It doesn't taste bad at all.  I just don't like the texture.


Let's end with something a little prettier -- downtown Philly.  It really is a pretty city.

And that's it for this time.

    1. You might like it. We begin eating it as very young children so I guess we don't know the difference. It tastes good, I just don't like the texture.

  4. I love Scrapple! I had Kim try it once. When she asked me what was in it I said "cornmeal, mostly cornmeal" :) She's not a fan.

    1. And you're right. It is mostly cornmeal. Msybe that's why I'm not a fan either.

    1. It's the texture for me too, not the taste so much. I've never tried potted meat but it doesn't sound appetizing.
