    Oh, and if already I mentioned the vermouth earlier in the thread, my apologies - please write it off as a senior moment.
    A senior hitting the vermouth too hard moment perhaps.

    I really need a separate wine fridge for my bottles. I hardly drink from them, but love cooking with it!
    I used to cook with Marsala a lot but I have just stopped keeping it and all other booze in the house.

    That would work.

    Thanks, Althaur. When I'm by myself I have no shame about digging into the cheese or pate' with a spoon but, in "polite company" it would be nice to have something between fingers and cheese, something to bring to a party for instance.

    Yup. Once you have experienced pate', there is absolutely no excuse to not include some liver in your diet, even for the offal-phobic among us.

    And, if you make the pate and bring it to the party, you know there will be something there you can eat. Plus everyone will think you are a culinary genius when really it is so simple. (For those of us who know how to make peanut butter toast of course.)

    i got a venison liver at the weekend and made venison liver pate. i medium rared the liver with butter, garlic, thyme, bourbon and cream. plus of course salt and pepper. it was awesome. i have half the liver left which i threw in the freezer and i have a pot of venison broth on. i also can prob render some tallow off the fat as i have the whole deer. this means i can try a dairy free, totally deer one too.

    Paleobird, do you feel any different? Any changes in your energy levels or skin?

    About to do a week of spuds-only beginning of Feb, then have a week of just steak&eggs in March lined up.

    Oooh. Where do you get venison liver? That sounds yummy.

    Is it very gamey? I never knew why people said that as if it were pejorative. I love gamey meats.

    That will be quite a change. I'm not really noticing anything that dramatic but I think I have been drifting toward this way of eating for some time now by my efforts to stay in ketosis. It wasn't like I just stopped eating vegetation one day, it's more like it just gradually faded away into the background. My skin and energy levels are great any time I am in ketosis. I think the one danger about going carnivore is the danger of going too high on the protein especially if the source is a lean one. I usually don't choose chicken for myself due to the O3/O6 ratio even if you can get the good free range kind. But a couple of times recently I have had chicken, at a dinner function and with my houseguest because she had cooked it and I didn't want to be ungrateful. I didn't feel right for a day or two after each of those meals. If your fat/protein ratio tips too far toward protein, you can knock yourself out of ketosis. Best to stick with the higher fat ruminants and seafood.

    Is it really stinky? (Forgive the city girl who doesn't know about such things.)

    Buck tallow, for older sexually mature animals... just like older boar hogs... can be VERY intense.
    Gamey is not the word for it.

    It can literally smell like the scent from the glands they have or their urine during the breeding season that they spray all over the place to mark territory and attract mates or whatever.
    UGHHHHHH!

    Not for the faint of heart indeed.

    I don't find doe tallow unpleasant though...along the lines of "gamey-ness" that someone might attribute to hogget or mutton I suppose, but a different flavor profile. But then a lot of people with Western palettes don't like those tastes either.
    The same sort of had dryness as mutton though IMO, since it is an actual tallow and not a softer fat.
