Cat food sausage?
Lifrapylsa – the warm liver sausage only your cat would eat.
Continuing in his quest to try every one of Iceland’s most
disgusting intriguing dishes - your intrepid gastro taster recently encountered warm, brown, meaty pouches being furtively bundled into a native’s shopping basket and wondered what could be so good........
Lifrapylsa – or liver sausage - does indeed look like the safest option when sat next to a row of roasted sheep’s heads, and at 300 kronor a pouch, it’s no doubt a good-value source of protein too. Those who think lifrapylsa is another kind of Nordic pate, like the Danish leverpostej, are very much mistaken. Lifrapylsa is chopped up bit of lambs liver, traditionally squeezed into a sheep’s stomach with some oatmeal, fat and seasoning - not dissimilar to a Scottish haggis. You can find warm, pre-boiled Lifrapylsa in some supermarkets or just buy the raw version and boil it up at home.
You ‘re supposed to eat lifrapylsa warm with mashed potato, though when your faithful IE writer prized open his meaty pouch, the unmistakable smell of microwaved Kitekat blasted into his nostrils and forced him to hurl the tasty treat half-way across the kitchen. Imagine warm cat food – because that’s just what lifrapylsa smells like, and upon later foolish discovery, tastes like it too. For people who can’t manage all their boiled sheep’s liver at once, you can either microwave it or fry slices of it the next day for breakfast.
I’m sticking to the horse meat.
