German Leberwurst (liver sausage) is usually smoked. It is made out of pig's liver mixed with pork and/or veal. It may contain pieces of fat and liver. There are 'pure' liver sausages made out of calf or fowl (Kalbsleberwurst, Truthahnleberwurst, Gaenseleberpastete). Leberwurst can be either coarse or fine. It is always spreadable. The ALDI store has a good selection of Leberwurst, which is reasonably priced.
Teewurst is a small liver sausage made out of a spiced, finely pounded pork-beef mixture. It has a rosy color and is spreadable. The name denotes that it is usually served at tea-time. There is no tea in the sausage.
