Goner Message Board / Food & Drink / Shit from the deli case I have never had
Posted: Feb 23, 2006 7:19 pm
I have scoped this shit out, but never purchased for obvious reasons. Anyone actually eat or recommend these questionable lunchmeats?:

Head Cheese (sweet or sour)
Tongue (any variety)
Blood Sausage

I have eaten much cow lengua in my life--my dad would buy the kind that was cured in a little bad with all the juice and then boil it and serve with cabbage. It tasted just like corned beef, but it had all those taste buds on it so I would cut those off and eat the inside. It was good.

Again, I apologize for my typos. I am old and have a neurological disorder and I taught myself how to type in like 1990. I am embarrassed!

Mortadella is really good italian bologna, usually with pistachios in it. Head Cheese and Souse are about the same thing. Not really my cup o guts. I think Souse is basically the southern version of scrapple. Any food with the word crap in it, has to be bad.

Mortadella rules... fancypants bologna with a fairly high fat content. More fat=more awesome!

Tongue is pretty alright, head cheese is a little weird.

What does tongue taste like?
Some Sunday mornings when I wake up, I can't even stand the taste of my OWN tongue

Mortadella is one of my faves.

Sliced tongue is pretty similar to corned beed, at least when it's on rye with mustard. The legendary Carnegie Deli in NYC has a good tongue sandwich. It's like $13 for a sandwich, but it's enough meat for 4 regular sandwiches.

Thuringer is like Braunschweiger. It's good on a Saltine.

Yeah, as stated. Cow tongue tastes like a moister corned beef. I like it sliced with durkee's mustard on the side.

So what's the scoop on blood sausage?

Bought blood sausage when an old friend came to visit and we piled up snacks and booze for the evening. We all thought it was really good that night, but the next morning it was a little gross for the repeat, hangovers aside.

Its got spongy areas that I am assuming is some kind of congealed bloody stuff and then there are big chunks of fat or lard--those are the most memorable parts in my experience. I don't think it's likely that I'll eat it again, but who knows?

Spanish blood sausage is called Morcilla, and it's really good....

mortadella is delicious and not at all scary

blood sausage is ridiculously rich. not my cuppa tea... you may like it.

alternate names for blood sausage products:
black pudding
boudin (rouge or noir)

just so you aren't surprised when you think "maybe i'll try THIS sausage."
