Livermush is a Southern United States food product composed of pig liver, head parts, and cornmeal. It is commonly spiced with pepper and sage. (Source).
If your not from the south, you probably have not eaten livermush. I love it fried thin and crispy. My daughter and husband prefer it thick and a little mushy in the middle. Either way you eat it, its good on bread. It sits beside the tomato or grilled cheese sandwich on a southern home table. Its good with eggs for breakfast too.
Today we left the house and headed to Shelby North Carolina for the annual livermush festival. I was going to get a good ole liver mush sandwich for lunch.
Not the case. When we got there, the streets were full of vendors, crafts, beer, dog shows and of course, yes, livermush stands.
However, the lines were so long it would have been time for meal three before I would have gotten one. Im one of those that will not stand in a long line for something, though a livermush sandwich seemed worth it.
We walked around a little bit then headed back into town. A little disappointed that I didnt get a livermush sandwich but its ok. I know places around town that can fry one up in a jiffy. Our high school used to sell it at the ballgames and it was a big hit.
One cool thing my husband bought at the festival was this t-shirt.
It has actually been dyed with North Carolina Red dirt. Hmmm. I knew that stuff would be good for something. I wonder how many Moms it took to figure this fad out?
Pretty cool huh.
Haha, my husband just said "are you really blogging about the livermush sandwich we didnt get?"
