    I pretty much avoid organ meats and blood sausage of any variety. My German farmer grandfather used to butcher hogs at the first cold front to come through south Texas. (Usually wasn't until late November or early December) I can still remember standing outside in a stiff north wind stirring the kettles while we cooked the pig blood and rendered the lard from the fat.
    The the smell to come out of the refrigerator while my grandmother cured the head cheese. She called it Sulze (Pigs stomach with all sorts of scraps of hog meat from the head, feet, ears, organs and and other parts that were too small to mess with or didn't make it into the sausage grinder.)
    Of course I enjoyed eating the wurst, hams, bacon and roasts that came from the hog, but it seems my elders were just wild about the blutwurst and Sulze.

    BTW, in Maciamo's selection I thought when he had English Jelly, I thought he was talking about Aspic. It seems like half the food I was served in England had a coating of that gelatinous crap! Here in America what he was talking about was Jello. I don't like it, don't eat it or even like to look at it however just about everybody else I know of here loves the crap!

    I'd have had a feast with your grandfather then. I can't cook though, but love the variety of old european foods.

    Could it be you are confusing two things? The meal you described first (Pigs stomach stuffed with other meat) is called "Saumagen" (hog stomach) and speciality from the Palatinate region, while Sülze actually is the scraps in aspic. The latter btw is the worst thing i've ever eaten in my life, the only thing in recent years that made me want to vomit. There is nothing in Maciamo's list above that can reach Sülze!

    As for me, I do not like the goat cheese and everything that is connected with coat milk products.
