One of the area's top scrapple makers could scrap its facility in the Philadelphia area for a plant site in Wisconsin. Habbersett Bros. Inc. will find itself in the Midwest unless its parent company succeeds in selling the plant in Lima, Delaware County, that the company has occupied for 147 years. The facility has been home to the manufacturer best known for its peppery, everything-but-the-oink pork-and-cornmeal product since 1840. Habbersetts produces about 10 million pounds of scrapple a year.

Pig snouts and pork tongues, as everyone knows, are ingredients of that most famous of Philadelphia edibles, scrapple. And that's just the trouble, according to Philadelphia historian Kenneth Finkel. Exhorting Philadelphians to free scrapple from the meat packers, Finkel yesterday evening delivered a lighthearted monograph on the history and lore of Philadelphia's oldest and most historic foodstuff. His lecture and a subsequent food tasting, held at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, 1300 Locust St., was one of a series being held in connection with "The Larder Invaded: Reflections on Three Centuries of Philadelphia Food and Drink," an exhibition presented jointly by the Library Company and the Historical Society.

Merely farm-to-city concepts having achieved the status of what-else-is-new?, perhaps the time is ripe for MidAtlantic, which at 37th and Market (on the ground floor of a sterile ice cube of a Science Center, no less) is taking a slightly different bite of that chestnut. It's milking the soul foods of the Pennsylvania Dutch for inspiration for a menu that includes, as a side, a cocktail called Rumspringa, named for the freewheeling teenhood of Amish youth before the hammer comes down.

I read Lucinda Fleeson's interesting article of Dec. 11 on scrapple - and would like to take issue with her. Scrapple is not a byproduct with us at Habbersett. We do not use pig snouts. Scrapple is a strange name to many, but we have never come up with a better one. Jim Daltry Media.

What to eat: This nondescript food cart, on 15th Street between Vine and Race, is best known for its breakfast sandwiches - cheap protein on a roll, made fast and fresh, to keep Hahnemann University Hospital students and employees going. Nothing fancy, just the classics, with solid execution. Don't miss: Daily News Assistant Managing Editor Gar Joseph insists that Alex and Maria's makes the best scrapple-and-egg sandwich in the city. He offers the following review: "Two well-beaten, fluffy eggs are paired with properly sliced, crispy scrapple on a fresh hoagie or Kaiser roll.

Philadelphia and scrapple: A match made in heaven. Most of us pay no heed that the sight of this local breakfast favorite is greeted with shock or derision by outsiders. It may be mystery meat, but it's our mystery meat. Now that a merger with a Wisconsin company is under its belt, Habbersett's, the sausage and scrapple producer, is moving whole hog toward new products and national markets. Under the terms of a September agreement, Habbersett Brothers of Media will allow Johnsonville Sausage Co. of Sheboygan to distribute Habbersett products.
