German liverwurst

In Berlin this summer I ate a number of interesting liverwursts. Returning home, I find Schaller and Weber to be the best quality liverwurst I can readily get, but am wondering if there isn't something hand-made that's still better. I'm particularly interested in finding a coarse liverwurst with truffles. Any ideas?

  1. The German deli counter in Grand Central Station has a large selection of German meats -- it's worth checking out to see if they have what you want.

      That seems to be "German Royal Hams", a.k.a. Koglin's ( I finally made it there to take a look, and yes, they look good. I'll go back tomorrow to see for sure - they open at 7 am. One thing that's attractive is that they seem to have home-style leberwurst in real casings.

        Yes, indeed. Koglin German Royal Hams, in the Grand Central Terminal Market, has the widest variety of liverwursts I have seen in New York in recent decades. At least a couple of these are coarse, home-style recipes. I've just tried their inexpensive Saxonian home-slaughtered variety - superb!

        Thanks for your recommendation.

          Hey, I'm glad it worked out for you.

          Another great thing they sell there is German hard candy. It's basically burnt sugar and must be the worst possible thing for your teeth, but it's really good.

    2. The Forest Pork Store.....I believe there are two stores, one in Queens and one in Huntington out in Suffolk County.A German style store with a good variety of wursts including several liverwursts.
