If there’s something that homesteading has taught me, it’s that meals is treasured. The quantity of labor and love and care that goes into rising each calorie, whether or not plant or animal, is critical… so greatest to not waste any of it. Particularly the organs: probably the most nutrient-rich a part of the animal! This rooster liver pate recipe is delicate and is ideal for anybody who doesn’t like liver. And it’s a terrific recipe to start out with if you happen to’re new to consuming liver and different offal.

If I’m being fully sincere, I don’t notably just like the style of liver; by no means have. The extra I eat it although, the simpler it will get to tolerate and dare I say… get pleasure from. In case you are new to consuming organ meat, this rooster liver pâté recipe is a incredible place to start out. Whereas you’ll nonetheless get that mineral-y style (it style that method as a result of it is filled with minerals, do not forget that!) it’s fairly palatable ready as a pâté. This recipe could be very easy and simple, with no frills and never loads of spices or extras.


I like utilizing all of the a part of an animal. Not solely is it a incredible technique to honor the animal that gave its life to maintain mine, however organ meat is probably the most nutrient-dense meals out there. It’s been an essential a part of serving to me heal and achieve well being after persistent Lyme illness. Organ meat, particularly liver, incorporates a formidable quantity of nutritional vitamins and minerals, which my physique likes to get frequently. In case you are somebody that struggles with issues like persistent sickness, fatigue, or anemia, consuming liver usually is your pal!

How do you eat rooster liver pâté?​

When you can eat this straight-up with a spoon (which isn’t a nasty technique to serve it to younger kids), I actually recognize it on a cracker. It’s 1000% higher on a cracker. Should you can’t eat crackers, it’s additionally actually good paired with different meats. In actual fact, I’d say the style of the liver is most hidden when paired with different meat. Unfold it on summer season sausage– my favourite, wrap some up in exhausting salami, or attempt it unfold on rooster breast or turkey deli meat. Some individuals prefer to have it with apple slices or greens, however I believe these issues deliver out a stronger liver taste, so I don’t favor them.


Substances in Rooster Liver pâté​

Rooster Livers
If I’m consuming organ meat, I need it to come back from the healthiest animals potential. I all the time hunt down rooster livers from animals that have been fed organically and raised on pasture. Liver freezes splendidly, so I all the time preserve a provide in my freezer. In case you are butchering your personal chickens, I hope you’re saving the livers!

That is one other ingredient the place high quality is absolutely essential to me. I like a European type butter for its increased butterfat content material and buttery-er taste. My favourite butter is Rumiano Organic, which I buy in 15-pound bulk boxes from Azure Standard. A standard and simple to search out European type butter is Kerry Gold.

Onion & Garlic
Simply so long as they’re contemporary, any number of onion and garlic will do, although I favor pungent yellow onion for this rooster liver pâté recipe.

Parmesan Cheese
You’ll be able to omit this if you happen to can’t eat cheese, however I believe it provides loads of good taste. Use a block of parmesan and grate it your self utilizing the very effective aspect of a field grater, or different small-holed grater… it should incorporate greatest into the pate this manner.

Sea Salt
I usually use Redmond’s Salt for all of my cooking. This salt is mined within the USA (in Utah) from an historical seabed that is protected against trendy air pollution. It incorporates minerals and has a incredible taste.

Are you able to freeze rooster liver pâté?​

Sure, rooster liver pâté could be frozen, although the feel received’t be fairly the identical as soon as thawed. It will likely be barely crumbly and never as easy, which I don’t thoughts however in all probability wouldn’t serve to firm.

I prefer to portion the pâté with a spring loaded scoop onto parchment paper and freeze it in single serving blobs. This makes it straightforward to eat smaller quantities extra ceaselessly. Pâté may also be frozen in straight-sided glass jelly jars in bigger portions.


A standard objection it’s possible you’ll hear is that the liver shops toxins, so it isn’t fit for human consumption. That is fully unfaithful. The liver *does* neutralize toxins, but it surely doesn’t retailer them. However, the liver is a storage organ for a lot of vitamins, like nutritional vitamins A, D, E, Okay, B12, Folic Acid, Copper, and Iron. These are vitamins that may assist your physique to do away with toxins.

As a result of organ meats are so nutrient-rich, you don’t want rather a lot. The common beneficial serving is 3 or 4 ounces per week of organ meats, however it is best to do no matter is best for you.

Whereas I’m over right here consuming liver as a result of I (principally) should, many individuals eat as a delicacy! I truly keep in mind once I was younger, that my dad used to make liver pate for the New Yr’s Eve events my mother and father would throw. How fancy it was!! (Belief me, we weren’t fancy individuals.) And this can be a incredible recipe to make and serve at a celebration– it’s a really delicate pate with a terrific, creamy texture.
