    Ate lots of head cheese as a kid, and some butcher shops around here still carry it. Bloodwurst was more of a favorite though.
    I only had headcheese once, when someone gave my Father a huge hog head. I remember to this very day (and I’m now 79 years old) when I started out the kitchen door and saw that HUGE UGLY head in a box staring at me by the door! I was probably 9 years old and it startled me!!!

    Anyway my Mother made that headcheese while I was in school…so I never saw what she did to make it! 

    But the memory also connected to the headcheese was Dad brought home the other first time taste treat…French onion sour cream dip for potato chips…

    I honestly loved it all!

    Do you think the head was a warning to RRP's dad for crossing the wrong person?
    They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That's against their interests. - George Carlin

    It was probably sent by Wes Johnson’s father.

    you can lead a fish to water but you can not make him drink it

    9 kilos of brain, but I wonder how much meat there is to scrape off to make head cheese?

    I wonder if the OP contracted a once thought extinct parasite from the whale and is in the ICU?

    Curious as to what a whale nipple looks like, thankfully that terrible night at the tri-Delt sorority at ISU has been successfully erased for life.   :s

    Hi everyone! Very sorry for not getting back to you, things were weirdly hectic and I didn't get time to cook (for real), let alone engage in the forum!

    That sneaky father-in-law already tried a part himself, without including me. Luckily, it worked out and even more luckily, I will be able to have some for Christmas.

    I will make sure to report how it was afterwards. I do feel bad for not being able to cook it myself, but on the other hand, I also cannot mess anything up ;).

    I will let you know how it turned out. 

    Happy holidays for everyone here!

    Classy.  My grandmother was a tri-delt, so was my mother and my three sisters.

    Thanks for checking in!  Please do let us know; I for one will likely never see whale or get to taste it.

    Thanks for the update, photo and description. Very interesting. I'll probably never have a chance to try that.

    I would have never thought whale meat would look like beef!  Cool!

    My cousin Billy dated a whale in high school. Whenever I got close to her I thought she smelled a lot like gamey salmon. For years I wondered if she had underwear made of old salmon skin, but now I just think she was just all whale. This forum is amazing, the things you learn on here.
