We make it here fresh every day! Souse, a highly seasoned hog’s head cheese, is very popular as a cold cut or appetizer. In Mississippi, Alabama, and other southern states, it is encountered in a spicy form known as souse or less spicy hog's head cheese. Hemphill’s souse has vinegar added, and is sold in the flavors of mild, hot, or extra hot. It is sold by the loaf (9lb average) or packed in 10/6oz packages.
