Best Head Cheese I know.

The Head Cheese from Schmalz's is a quality mix of pork tongue, snout and rind slowly stewed with spices in particular garlic for hours which when ready sets to yield a wonderful aspic or a natural meat jelly with a nice garlic flavor.
It reminds me of a Czechoslovakian dish that my grandfather and mother made but lost to me. The headcheese certainly comes close but without the bones from the pig's feet.
Try a piece. You may love it.

Not always the best?

Your headcheese is normally delicious. It is addictive.
But the one I bought yesterday from European Deli in Marietta seems to contain a lot more gelatin than usual. In fact, entirely too much.
Is that a one time impression or did the receipe change?

Brings back memories of childhood

I haven't had such good head cheese since growing up many years ago. Great garlic flavor, JUST GREAT! I recently discovered Schmalz Foods and will continue to make purchases from them.
I would like to see Schmalz carry Metwurst, either coarse or fine grind.

Head Cheese

Your Head Cheese is the best ever. Unfortunately, only the International Market in Las Vegas, NV carries it - sometimes - last visit to this Market had no Schmalz's products at all - Is there another place in Las Vegas that carries Schmalz's stuff?

Comfort food

To me this tastes like the holidays my grandmother was from Germany and made items like this than I used to be able to find farmer's markets in PA now they're becoming more and more difficult to find thank you for making such a great product
