We also used the jowls as fresh and cured meat, very similar to bacon/side pork. Does anyone make headcheese anymore? Sounds grim, but it's delicious. I have recipe/method if anyone is interested.

There is a guy that works with my cousin whose mother still makes it, she gets all the heads.

We also used to make scrapple and liverwurst.Used to make maple syrup,apple butter and sauerkraut but not no more since all the older people have died.

Scrapple?      I do plan on making liverwurst. I hope freezing the livers won't effect them ,just don't have time yet to do it. Any recipes for Liverwurst , I'm interested. I did find some online , but a family favorite would  be great.

Tom, I agree with you.  Pasture raised anything is the best.  As the farmers here know.

 

Your bacon still has my mouth watering.

 

We buy a half or whole beef from a local Amish farmer.  The meat cutter, Amish as well, does a great job and when I pick it up, it's the best view in the county from his home.

Down south we don't make liverwurst. We make live mush. Pork liver, corn meal, spices. A few slices fire and a big bowl of grits is hard to beat.

I don't know anyone that makes apple butter anymore because no one has a copper kettle. And it's too expensive to buy one, if you can find one.

We do make pear preserves and pickle most anything.

We have apple butter, but send the extra to Alabama with my mother to trade for pecan honey butter.
