what's the verdict on head cheese co/ck/s?

just picked up a slab of some homemade xxx spicy head cheese at the local butcher and it sure is tasty
>>
Good for you?
>>
>>9061747
The verdict is, you're desperate for attention.
>>
>>9061747
There is no verdict, some people like it, others don't, some other people didn't try it because it looks gross. That's about it. Good for you if you picked up some, now post about food you're actually making you lazy piece of shit.

>>9061763
Polite response, but you have to start from a base of utter contempt.
>>
What's not to love? Gelatinous connective tissue and chunks of meat.
>>
>>9061768
isn't every OP?

>>9061782
how unhealthy is this shit, am I going to clog my arteries?
>>
>>9061747
Make your own faggot. It's easier than finding a butcher that makes it for you.

well my butcher is in walking distance so...
>>
>>9061812
Yeah, that's ironically one of the big differences between rural backwaters and vibrant cities: You have local butchers and bakers. We have walmart so we have to make our own if we want anything more than exotic than Hillshire Farms sausage style product or Wonder "bread".
>>
headcheese is great
>>
>>9061785
>am I going to clog my arteries?
probably
what is it, pork and cheese and lard and sodium-laden spices?
also it ain't really home made if you bought it from the butcher
>>
>>9061747
The only bad thing is that you can't grill/pannini that shit, because the gelatin melts out.

But an ultra-thin slice, on toasted bread, that's just excellent.

> head cheese with vinegar and thinly sliced raw onion rings

hnnnnnnnng

this is too intimidating for me
>>
It's amazing. We used to butcher a pig and make some ourselves once a year when I was a kid but now my father is an alcoholic and my mother doesn't talk to him, so that's all gone.
Homemade headcheese is fucking amazing, but seeing it made probably isn't for everybody.

I still get some from a store around Christmas, but it's never the same.
>>
>>9064660
It's a blob of gelatin stuffed with offal, why would anyone eat this outside of saving every meatscrap like a 1700's peasant?

I live in the first world, I don't need to eat tongues to survive.

I'd rather eat chitlins

I thought head cheese was brain in gelatin.
>>
>>9065080
>>9065205
The website meatsandsausages.com lists around 25 different recipes for it from around the world including several from the US and most don't contain "offal" just scraps that would often be ground into sausage anyway.

Like with many other things, the unusual name frightens most modern americans into running away from it screaming in fear.
>>
>>9065205
Brain can arguably be considered offal, depending on who you ask.

You keep suggesting I'm American, and it's hardly the name that makes it not appealing.
>>
The name always makes me think of smegma
>>
It's called head cheese because it used to be made of ground up pig heads

and still is.

This is what future petridish meat is going to look like

I love head cheese, I just didn't know what it was called for the longest time until some random cooking show. The local banh mi place I ate at growing up had the best head cheese.

We call it pig cheese and it's either random pork scraps or just tongue. Also the loads of paprika helps not only with the taste but also hides the gelatin.

>tfw slaughtering a 270kg swine every year and making this dish alongside home made sausages, bacon and whatever this smoked red meat and these pieces of fat cooked in a massive pot are called in English

Not living in the "civilized" world has its perks.
