  • OMG! Chicken Livers!

    Ok, I am a country girl but I do not ever recall eating chicken livers. Not knowingly by choice anyways. I have bought my share before, to use them to go catfishing but to eat them? Never ever crossed my mind.

    Well, I just happened to see some today so I bought them, and came home and fixed them. Little bacon grease, with some onions. My oh my did they hit the spot. I was pretty hungry though, but I can't believe I havent tried them sooner.

    I continue to amaze myself every day, with something it seems. Either the ability to pass up a donut, or to not stop at a drive thru, or to skip breakfast & maybe even lunch, or to cinch up my belt to the last possible notch - just amazed every day

    Yes, they are immensely more delicious than cow liver. Good addition to the menu! Congrats!

          I am going to have to research my comeback for DH though. Before when I have mentioned fixing liver, I got the schpeel about do you know what the liver is used for and at the time, I couldnt remember what my reply should have been, but I know I have read it on here somewhere

            You tell him the liver removes toxins, it does not store them.

              Just ordered some from my farmer. Went out for dinner last month to a nice restaurant and they had a chicken liver pate appetizer that just about had me licking the plate, so I want to try to reconstruct it...

              Mark had a chicken liver pate recipe, BTW.

                      Chicken liver pate is great.
                      Fry up some liver in a bunch of butter. Spice any way you like while cooking. I like Italian herbs, garlic, s&p, and a dash of sherry (or not). Then use a hand blender or put everything in the regular blender and add some cream. Blend until reeeealy smooooth.
                      Then cool and put in tupperware cups to chill.
                      Pate makes a great portable Primal protein option. Also a good breakfast option when you don't feel like cooking.

                      (can be made with other kinds of liver too)

                          I will have to try pate next. I had the liver again for supper, and I wasnt quite as hungry and it was a tad cooled off by the time I got around to it, and already had salad on the plate so I didnt feel like going to the trouble to warm it up, so it wasn't quite as yummy as lunch but still good.

                          How often should one eat it and how much at a time? I can look it up also, was just wondering.

                            About frequency of liver eating. The only real answer is "it depends". There is a lot of conflicting info out there. Everything from eat it every day if you want to live to if you eat more than one once once a week you will die. Frankly I think a lot of the fear about "ODing" on liver is overblown. It is chock full of some wonderful vitamins. If you are already taking a lot of supplements, you should think about the overlap. Otherwise just enjoy when you feel like it. When your body has had enough, it will tell you. Liver just won't appeal that day.

                              I admit, all I've had is beef liver. I do have some lambs liver in the freezer somewhere, I should dig it out and try it. I will have to try chicken liver, I love pâté but have never made my own either.
