You can get livermush (or liver pudding) at most groceries in the Carolinas and Tennessee (and as a sandwich at many short order cafes). It is not exclusively a breakfast item, but is especially good then. I also like it in a sandwich covered with mustard and a couple of slices of vidalia onion.
From what I hear, it goes well with Lutefisk [;)][;)][;)]
Seriously, though, I’m sure you will get some good recommendations from the good folks around these parts, but not from me unfortunately as I am not familiar with the geographical area or the particular food item.
Calling Mr Carlton….
Very new to the board and I’m having a great time looking around. I wish I knew about it about 7,000 miles and a couple of hundred bad meals ago.
I’ll be on roadtrip this summer and will have a week to kill down in the East Tennessee-North & South Carolina area and saw something posted that intrigued me, called livermush.
I know what’s in it, but where would I get it? Is it exclusively a breakfast item? Any info would be welcome.
Habbersett Scrapple is really a luxury sausage item originating with the Pennsylvania Dutch, delicious when sliced then, fried crisp, and served usually for breakfast with Heinz Chili Sauce (at least in our family). You can usually buy it fresh in E. Pennsylvania/S. New Jersey/Deleware, and frozen in many other parts of the country. The liver flavor is slight, and it really is delicious!
If you happen through Lumberton, N.C. on I-95 stop at Fuller’s-they usually have it on their buffet. It’s called liver pudding here in NC.
I have also seen it in the Amish Area of Northern Indiana.
Liver Mush is akin to liver pudding and,farther north, Scrapple. It is (usually Pork) liver, ground and cooked with spices including lots of black pepper and sometimes red pepper with a binder of corn meal (did I hear Rice in some regions? possibly lowland South Carolina?)It is usually fried crisp and usually with breakfast as a meat. It is absolutely wonderful with fried dried apple pies or the weenie-substitute: apple sauce. At any rate, it goes great with any apples including dried apples cooked with a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg. Liver mush appears to have the same coarse corn meal. Liver pudding is always finer grained having a softer and silkier feel in the mouth. Geo areas: Southestern. I’ve seen it as far north as PA and NJ.
What did I miss?
Seems to be a huge gap here….
Perhaps our illustrious moderators are at lunch?
Uhm.. why is this person’s reply still on the board?
oh Moderators…perhaps our new friend..and welcome Spock13 didn’t know that the use of expletives is forbidden…….wonder what fish are biting today?
Shelby NC has a livermush festival.
It is a pretty regional item.
I read about your liver pudding and I would like to know if there ia any store or co. that deliver or ship this if I want to buy. Please let me know ASAP.
Thanks a Million
