Livermush Ingredients: Pig liver, assorted other pig parts (usually fatty), cornmeal, pepper, salt Fat content: One popular recipe calls for one liver and a pound and a half of fatty parts for a six-serving batch of livermush, making each serving worth about 30 grams of fat. Livermush is a dish with at least 30 percent pig liver and a mixture of pig head parts and cornmeal. You may say "yikes!" but locals love it celebrating the dish with an annual Livermush Expo; putting it in omelets and pizzas; and devoting a Facebook fan page to it. So there.
