    Beef liver is maroon and calf liver is pale pink so maybe one was mutton liver and the other lamb liver but the butcher didn't want to use the word "mutton" so instead called the mutton "fry" and the lamb "liver". It seems that for Indian cuisine mutton and lamb are interchangeable words so maybe it is the same for others, too.

    Bingo! This must be it, one was very dark, the other pale like calf liver. You win the prize I reckon sbhikes.

    The colour of liver varies significantly. I expect it has much to do with the diet of the beast, and perhaps its health as well. I see livers side by side at my butcher with the same label but different shades
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine
