I was asked recently to explain the difference between souse meat and sulz. I thought you might find the response of interest: Headcheese is known throughout the world by different names. In the south, headcheese is also known as souse or souse meat. In Germany, sulz is one of the names headcheese is known by in that country. The difference between these two are the recipes for souse and sulz. Milwaukee Wisconsin is populated with generations, from both the south and Germany, who brought with them many traditional recipes. Headcheese was one of them. Although the recipes are different, we have the opportunity to enjoy and appreciate each delectable rendition of headcheese.
