Fresse (or Frisse or Grive)

Definition
Fresse are pork meat-balls prepared in the butcher's shop by mincing small pieces of liver, lung, plucks, etc. that are mixed together. Meat-balls are wrapped up in the omentum, in order to keep together the various kinds of meat. Meat-balls, weighing about one hectogram, are often covered with corn flour, so that they do not stick together. Some butchers add raisins to the mixture, others sugar. Fresse are fried in oil. In the past, they were fried with lard or butter.
