Chester Said:scrapple recipe?
We Answered:Real Scrapple
here is why you don't see any real scrapple recipes on Zaar. This is not "the" Scrapple recipe. This is A scrapple recipe. Each family developed its own. When I was a kid, every family had its own. It is becoming a lost art. They can tell you Grandma made scrapple but not what her recipe was.
4 lbs ground meat, See NOTE
buckwheat flour, see recipe
3 ounces salt
1/4 ounce black pepper
1/4 ounce sweetened marjoram
1/4 ounce nutmeg
1/4 ounce thyme or sage
2 1/2 ounces onions
1 pinch mace (optional)
1 pinch red peppers (optional)
NOTE: the meat involved is Pork head, meat, feet, heart and tongue, or other pork trimmings, if desired, including liver.
Place them in a water in a covered container until the soft tissue separates readily from the bone. Separate tissue from bone and grind with a fine grinder. Return the ground meat to the strained soup container and boil. Cereal is then added. A common cereal mixture is seven parts cornmeal and three parts of either buckwheat, white, or rye flour.
Approximately 4 lbs of the ground meat combined with 3 lbs of soup (liquid) plus 1 lb of cereal is sometimes used. Gradually moisten the cereal with a cool liquid (water or the cooled soup) to prevent lumping. Add this premoistened cereal to the ground meat-soup mixture slowly then boil for 30 minutes.
Prior to finishing boiling, add seasoning.
A suggested seasoning combination for 8 lbs of finished scrapple would include 3 oz salt, 1/4 oz black pepper, 1/4 oz sweetened marjoram, 1/4 oz nutmeg, 1/4 oz sage or thyme, and 2-1/2 oz onions. Some prefer to add a pinch of mace and a pinch of red pepper also.
After the seasoning is mixed thoroughly and the onions cooked, pour the scrapple into pans (not bowls) and refrigerate to 30 - 32F degrees immediately.
Note this is usually made in large batches and saved throughout the year until the next butchering. It uses every part of the pig so nothing is wasted. It wasn't a throwaway society. This is also NOT a city recipe. They didn't butcher as they did in the country.
number of pans is a guess.
Note: IF you want the instructions for cleaning the meat [from head and so forth] zaar me. I am not going to post it because more people are going to look at this that are NOT going to do it yourself than people who are. Some just don't wanna hear it and that isn't a problem. My brother always turned green.
Jay Said:raw diet recipe for cats -- critique please!!!?
We Answered:I answered your other post so this is a cont....
I suggest you get some Kal brand bone meal in powder form. This is a human grade supplement also used by people who raw feed cats and dogs.
If your cat is moderately active and weighs about 12.5 lb, he needs about 300 calories daily.
The recommended minimum amount of calcium for an adult is 150mg/100calories. For kittens min. 250mg/100 calories. So based on this he needs 450mg min. per day. I would not go a lot higher on a long-term basis. Could lead to hypercalcemia.
The Kal product has 2000mg calcium per teaspoon. I would use 1/4 teaspoon per day.
I would not use eggshells as a main source of calcium because I don't know how much is in one.
As for taurine, Here is a not-so-handy chart of taurine content of foods:
You can find more about taurine and more on the following site. I got some of the preceeding information from it:
I think there is a raw pet diet forum somewhere on Yahoo, but haven't looked for it yet.
Hope this and my previous answer give you enough to figure it out.

Audrey Said:BARF Diet for Dalmatians...?
We Answered:I don't use any recipes myself. But here's a site that I often visit and they do have a sample menu of what they feed their dogs if you want any ideas.
They also have many books on the subject as well as books with menus and meal plans. They're quite pricey so you might want to look them up on Amazon or check out Borders.
Best of luck!
Charlotte Said:Does anyone feed their dog homemade dog food?
We Answered:Yahoo! Groups has several groups that you should check out.
