“Newfoundland scrunchions are a beloved and iconic dish that holds a special place in Newfoundland and Labrador’s culinary heritage. These small, crispy bits of salted pork fat are rendered until they are golden and crunchy. Scrunchions are traditionally used as a flavorful topping or garnish, adding a burst of savory goodness to a variety of dishes. They are commonly sprinkled over fish and brewis, boiled potatoes, and salt fish. The irresistible crunch and salty flavor of scrunchions create a delightful contrast and elevate the overall taste of a dish. Newfoundlanders take pride in their scrunchions, as they represent a connection to the land and sea, embodying the resilience and resourcefulness of the province’s culinary traditions.”
