I Sing The Praises Of Liver Cheese

Does anybody else like this stuff? I must admit, I'd kind of forgotten about liver cheese because it seems to be disappearing from the "luncheon meat" departments in most stores.

I'm talking about the square, lunchmeat-sized stuff with the ring of fat around it, not the liverwurst or braunschweiger that comes in a tube.

I was in the local small-town grocery the other day when I noticed they sold it, sliced to order, off a large liver cheese "brick." I had to try it so bought a pound, a thin slice of plastic wrap between each slice, neatly wrapped in white butcher paper: the way meat should be sold.

No pale, tasteless, prepackaged Oscar Mayer liver cheese here: this stuff was top-notch. 3 or 4 slices between two pieces of white bread is all you need.

Their sliced-to-order pickle loaf is also quite impressive.

I seem to have my limits. I'm tempted to try their head cheese or souse but so far I haven't been up to it.

History: This dish was created in the Middle Ages when bits and pieces of meat and gelatin were enclosed in the head skin of the animal cooked and served that way.

The character "Leatherface" in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was originally called "Headcheese" but they decided the name wasn't scary enough....

The seafoam ode is a bit cheesy.

Planalp,
You have got to remember that my Mother was from Oklahoma! (I keep thinking about 'wilted lettuce' and my wifes lack of culinary experience)!
I remember 'liverwurst' sandwiches! I didn't hesitate for an instant, to eat!

I'm uncertain of the difference between liverwurst and 'Liver Cheese'?
Your description and my memory seem the same!

I think it's just a difference in texture. Liverwurst is more "spreadable" and liver cheese is more 'sliceable."
