It's interesting how the same name can mean completely different foods. I had heard of souse, but never seen it or actually known what it was. Then we lived for 2 years in the Bahamas, and souse is a regular dish there, but it's a brothy soup/stew, and quite delicious. I've had chicken souse, chicken and conch souse which are both delicious (the chicken they use is the 2 bone section of the wings), and I've had sheep's tongue souse (a local hangover remedy), which wasn't quite as tasty (more cartilage than meat), at least not on my US palate.

Some of the churches held Souse-outs for fund raisers the way we might do a chili cook-off or a smorgasborg pot luck dinner here.

My dad (born in Macclesfield, Cheshire then moved to a village on the borders of Lancashire/Derbyshire/Cheshire at age 6) used to call my brawn "souse" but I'm not sure whether it's a northern English name for brawn/head cheese. My brawn recipe brined the head before cooking rather than using vinegar to pickle it.


Not just food for the poor either. Jane Austen features it in "Persuasion"

Now she leads cooking lessons at her farm.

Nothing. It just sits there and sulks. After several attempts with l-o-n-g waits in between I gave up.
