Seen Nueske's Liverwurst in Boston?

On a CH Homecooking thread, Nueske's has been compared to liverwurst poetry. Anyone seen it around here? thanks much.

  1. I'm not sure you can get anything from Nueske's in the Boston area (maybe a few places carry the bacon?). I order bacon, hams, and smoked turkeys from them:

      I get their bacon at Russo's when I see it (not always). Didn't see their liverwurst there, but I net they could get it. My fave bacon.

    2. Ive not seen any Nueske's here.

      Just came back from Chicago where it's everywhere. I'm not that big of a fan, actually.

      1. I've seen Nueske's bacon at Savenor's in Cambridge. They may have had the liverwurst, but I wasn't looking for it. You could give them a call.

            We tried a pate from Baltic Deli recently that fits somewhere on the liverwurst-braunschweiger spectrum. My friend spotted it in their deli case, a big rectangle of pate about 4" high and more than a foot across. My friend asked the girl behind the counter how we should eat it & she said on a sandwich...we were too hungry when we got home, though, and just polished it off with some bread.

            I know it's nit what you asked for but if you're in the area it might be worth a try :)

              I can highly recommend the Schaller & Weber goose liver paté. It's wonderful stuff, with a rich but not overpowering flavor, quite soft and spreadable, and with chunks of some sort of ham in it. I just had some for lunch on Clear Flour caraway rye - perfection.

              They sell it at some of the Russian stores - Bazaar almost always has it, and Berezka sometimes does. Also delicious is their Teewurst, a smoked meat paste that I acquired a taste for when I lived in Germany. Schaller & Weber is the only US producer I've seen.

                I also like the Schaller & Weber liverwursts, found them at Savenors maybe 5 years ago but then couldn't find them for several years except at the local distributor's (Euroguild) house in Walpole.

                You've actually seen it recently at the Russian markets?

                1. re: steinpilz

                  Roche Brothers/Sudbury Farms stores carry Schaller and Weber products.

                2. re: opinionatedchef

                  Karl's sausage kitchen has awesome liverwurst - your choice of fine or coarse grind. I prefer the coarse.


                  1. re: gltsoi

                    Their coarse liverwurst ("traditional style", as they say) is awesome. Be sure to try the "sour style" headcheese as well. Yeah, I know, headcheese. It's terrific :)

              2. I just got some ordinary supermarket deli type liverwurst -- not sure if it's Boar's Head or Dietz & Watson or what -- but I'm still excited about having it for lunch tomorrow. I'm thinking paper-thin-sliced onions, red lettuce, mayo and yellow mustard on sturdy white bread.
