Morning Song – Scrapple From The Apple

January 14, 2017

Scrapple is what it sounds like: a mush of pork scraps and trimmings mixed with flour and cornmeal. Form it into a loaf, then fry up the slices for breakfast along with your eggs.  It’s a Pennsylvania Dutch dish made by and for people who couldn’t afford bacon.

“Scrapple From The Apple” is a mush of leftovers too.  Charlie Parker took the opening  chords from Fats Waller’s “Honeysuckle Rose” and mashed it together with the bridge from George Gershwin’s “I Got Rhythm”. As you might expect, the result is delicious.
