Souse can mean to cover a food in liquid, to plunge a food in liquid, or it can refer to the liquid that is used.

Sousing something can be for the purposes of cooking or pickling.

For cooking, the liquid is often a spiced vinegar solution. For pickling, the liquid is usually brine or a vinegar.

In the Bahamas, a souse is a meat broth with onions, lime juice, celery, and peppers. The meat can typically be oxtail, pig's feet, sheep's tongue, or chicken.
