Oh Yes!!!! Pate is to die for!! Love it! My dad used to make THE most delicious Chopped Liver when I was growing up.It is incomparable to anything you can buy anywhere!!! And it is so very good for you,especially if you are amaemic.
No, I’ve never bought any of those meats to cook. Just the thought of them, turns me right off them. I do like chicken pate though, but only eat it, ‘once in a blue moon’ I’ve never eaten tripe eighter, although i know my father-in-law loves it.
Chicken liver made with onions and turned into pate is somehow not as strong as ordinary liver which I also do not like just cooked. I also put hard boiled eggs in mine, and salt and pepper -miss it now that i think about it -on a piece of toast!
Not any more! My mum is a big fan of offal and as children we used to eat it all the time - liver, heart, tongue, chittlings (pig intestines), brawn (like pate but made from pig cheek), brains, tripe (cow stomach lining)....... though oddly enough chicken liver wasn't considered to be human food but was given to our cat! Poultry gizzards were also boiled up for feline consumption.
As an adult I wouldn't touch any of those except tripe which I still rather like and I do love love love black pudding (blood sausage).
Love liver and gizzards in my chicken curry:-) brings back memories of my childhood when my grandmother made a chicken curry to die for with all the bits and pieces!
Seasoned and deep fried liver...that too is delicious!
and how can I not mention pate!
My mother loved liver and onions and made it often; all of us enjoyed it. When all us kids left home, she would order it at a restaurant if it was available.
My father and I were the ones who wanted the gizzard and other bits from poultry.
I have been vegetarian for almost 40 years, so that was a long time ago.
P.S. Love Kidneys on Toast. I like to casserole them, with veggies, then chop-up onto the Toast. Give Heart to cat, & liver, as well. Eat Haggis when on a Restaurant Menu. Have Sheep's Brains poached in Lemon Juice, or Crumb-fried. Can't hack Tongue, Ears or Feet of anything. Love Oxtail Consommé!
