    2      pounds        fresh pork -- See notes b
    2      quarts        boiling water
    2      teaspoons     salt
    1 1/2  cups          cornmeal

 Simmer pork in boiling water with 2 teaspoons of salt until meat is very
 tender (about 2 hrs). Save Stock.
 Shred the cooked pork with a fork into fine pieces or threads.
 Bring to boil 1 quart of stock.
 Mix cornmeal and cold water, then add to boiling stock stirring in to
 prevent clumps. ( I think  my Mom used all stock no water.)
 Cook stirring until thick.
 Add seasonings. Stir the meat to the cornmeal mush and cook for 5
 Pour into a buttered loaf pan 9x5x3.
 Chill until firm. Slice 1/4-1/2 inch thick slices ( We like ours thin and
 Dip the slices in flour to coat lightly and brown them on both sides in
 hot oil. 
 Serve hot with lots of syrup.
 Some people like them plain or with butter.
 My brother ate his with ketchup. (But he was a weird eater and ate
 EVERYTHING with ketchup then.)

 NOTES :  a. Or 2 servings if I am very hungry and haven't had any for a
  b. We use a piece of fresh shoulder or something even if it has a bone,
 and I think we prefer a bone.
 Grandma usually fixed this any time of the yea, but I always think of 
 the day after Easter. She always liked to have a fresh ham on Easter and
 would boil the hock down for scrapple Easter night and fix the mush up.
 The next morning she would fry up enough scrapple for a small army. I
 guess with 4 kids and their spouses, 8 grandkids and too many 2cnd and
 3rd cousins around plus parents and other friends and relatives, we were
 a small army.
