Headcheese

Recommended Posts

I woke up early yesterday and made a morning trip to Netcost in Bensonhurst. Came away with two pounds of different headcheeses, jars of herring, a can of cod liver (to be eaten at home as its laxative effects are dramatic), a kind of sheek kebab and a mystery sausage, both from the lunch buffet.

I also found on sale a can with no English on its label, but a picture of a cow. Curious meat product? No, condensed milk. 😲

Right, and Pravda is Russian for truth.

The mystery sausage was great. Looked like a coiled Toulouse sausage, but the filling was not finely ground: chunks of meat and fat. Veal?

In store, they now have a soundtrack of a cheerful choir singing about how great Netcost is.
