On my recent trip to grandmas house we stopped at this small hole in the wall. On the menu were a few things that I have never heard of. Livermush was first on the list....I had to ask the lady who took our order what livermush was. She got a confused look on her face like I was supposed to know what it was. Then she said it was like scrabble. Again the confused look came across my face. Im still really confused. Can anyone tell me what the heck livermush is? Is it as unappealing as it sounds? Anyone else see weird stuff on travels and have been really confused?

Yuck. I think that liver mush sounds horrible. I have a vegan diet so I wouldn't eat anything like that. I don't imagine many people eat liver mush. Scrabble is a game with letters of the alphabet I think. I wonder what the lady meant by her comment. One time I was shopping at a supermarket in Tunisia. I was trying to find a drink but almost picked a bottle of floor cleaner. When it is a foreign language it is well worth asking an assistant if very unsure like I was in that situation.

It was explained to me that she meant scrapple not scrabble. It sounded like scrabble to me lol. I can understand it a bit better in another country, it just amazes me the differences in this country from state to state.

It is just what it sounds like. Hog liver, cornmeal and pork. Has some sage and red pepper in it. I guess they even have a livermush festival. Ugh! I have never been able to stand liver. I think any organs like liver or heart are discusting. I have only eaten liver and onions one time that I was able to keep it down.

my Grandma used to make me eat it as a kid. I cant stand it anymore now then i could as a kid. The discription I got of it made it sound not so bad. But i still wouldnt eat it.

I wasn't sure I wanted to know, but from the description above, it sounds a whole lot more appetizing than the word does.

Hi Erilyn: Livermush is like "scrapple" not "scrabble." It is a type of pork meat preparation consisting of ground pig liver, pork and cornmeal, mixed and fried in oil on a skillet. The nearest analogy to it is your everyday corned beef or canned spam. Beware eating it if you are sensitive to pepper, livermush is traditionally prepared spiced with it.

Thank you for the explanation and the correction, I swear it sounded like she said scrabble lol. I am really glad I decided not to try it! I am not big on pepper. It was a tiny place in North Carolina that we went to. The coffee was really good though!
