Liver Pudding? No Thanks, I'll Have the Cat Barf.

I'm an adventurous eater. Sure, I have my food hangups (I like to eat even numbers of things) and personal food rules (meat should not be cooked in a ball or loaf, sliced tomatoes are horrifying, olives are grody), but I won't let any of it get in my way of enjoying a good meal or expanding my palate. But I do have one exception. One thing I have cooked and eaten once that I will never eat again.

 

Liver Pudding.

 

Liver Pudding, or Liver Mush, as they call it in some parts of North Carolina, is a horrible, horrible foodstuff that smells like burning hair when you cook it and tastes even worse. It's a "sausage" made of liver, spices, head meat and a binder, usually cornmeal. It comes in wax-paper-wrapped bricks or long, sausage-style links, like kielbasa. Below is a picture of one of the long, sausage-style links. Once you see what it looks like I'm sure you'll steer clear too.
