Homemade Scrapple

(20 servings)

  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 2 cups cornmeal
  • 2 quarts pork broth
  • 1 pound head meat
  • 4 cups buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • salt and pepper to taste
In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, combine all ingredients and cook until mixture is thick - stirring often.

Pour into two greased loaf pans. Allow loafs to cool completely.

Turn out the loafs onto a cutting board and slice pieces about 3/4-inch thick. Fry slices on each side in butter (large fry pan over medium-high heat) until browned.

Serve slices with a generous portion of apple butter if available.
