About liverwurst

Liverwurst, or leberwurst, is German for a spreadable meat-based sausage that's made from liver. It's frequently found in plain or smoked versions, beef or pork, but it all comes down to a matter of taste as to which you ultimately prefer. You can slice it or spread it, eat it straight off the roll, or fry it in a pan. This versatile sausage combines organ meat, fat, seasonings, and meat into a tasty pâté-like substance that you can spread onto toast or fresh bread for a sandwich and pair with other spreads. 

There's no denying the fact that the very name of liverwurst sounds unappealing, but as the saying goes, never judge a book by its cover. The fact that liverwurst is made from organ meat is a good thing, as the liver and other organs are full of nutrients that are beneficial to your body. Liverwurst is packed with iron and can easily address iron deficiencies in one serving. It also contains selenium and vitamin A, which helps build up the immune system, and contains B12. Just in case you were thinking that the rest of the essential minerals were being left out, don't worry. Liverwurst contains every essential mineral in small quantities.

Many people find themselves repelled at the idea of eating organ meat. Organ meat is indeed an acquired taste because it tends to have a more intense flavor than the meat from other parts of the animal. However, the only thing that's really "bad" about organ meat is this tendency towards a strong flavor. Consuming organ meat is a great way to supply your body with vitamins and minerals that are important for your body and overall health. Liver sausage makes it easier to put organ meat into your diet and enjoy a tasty meal that's full of goodness.

Liverwurst is frequently called Braunschweiger, and it's not unusual to see both names on a roll of liverwurst. The fact is, Braunschweiger means a smoked flavor is added to the liverwurst. If you only see liverwurst on the package, you know that the contents do not contain the smoke flavor. Braunschweiger gets its name from the town of Braunschweig, where the smoked flavor originated from.

FAQs About Liverwurst

As previously mentioned, the name liverwurst originates from the German language. However, it's possible to find variations in Poland, the Netherlands, Hungary, Romania, Norway, the Czech Republic, and other European countries. Liverwurst is so prevalent that there are protections for unique variations under the EU's Protected Geographical Status law. 

Liverwurst is manufactured in the same fashion as a cased sausage and dense enough to be consumed like a sausage if desired. The main difference between liverwurst and a traditional cased sausage is its density and texture. A cased sausage uses more meat in its mixture for a firmer texture, whereas liverwurst uses more fat to make it spreadable. You can handle liverwurst much the same as you would a sausage, including how it's prepared and cooked. 

Liverwurst is flavored with a variety of spices such as black pepper, ground mustard seed, nutmeg, thyme, allspice, onion, and garlic. There's no one right way to flavor liverwurst; it's a matter of preference when it comes to selecting a brand and flavor profile of liverwurst. The sausage is supposed to have a strong, savory taste that complements the base ingredients.
