454 gm Chicken liver, raw (organic, free range)
2 tbsp chopped Shallots (minced. Or green onions)
2 tbsp Butter, unsalted (organic)
1/3 cup Madeira, wine (or cognac or port)
1/4 cup Almond milk, unsweetened (or whipping cream or any alternative milk)
1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
1/8 tsp Allspice, ground
1/8 tsp Black pepper
1/4 tsp, ground Thyme, dried
1/2 cup Butter, unsalted (melted. Or ghee or coconut oil)


1. Look the livers over and remove any greenish or blackish spots. 

2. Cut the livers into 1/2 inch pieces. 

3. Saute with the shallots or green onions in hot butter for 2 to 3 minutes, until the livers are just stiffened, but still rosy inside. Scrape into the blender jar. 

4. Pour the wine or cognac into the saute pan and boil it down rapidly until it has reduced to 3 tablespoons. Scrape it into the blender jar. 

5. Add the almond milk (or cream) and seasonings to the blender jar. Cover and blend at top speed for several seconds until the liver is a smooth paste.

6. Then add the melted butter and blend several seconds more. 

7. Force the mixture through a fairly fine mesh sieve and taste carefully for seasoning. 

8. Pack into the bowl or jar, cover with waxed paper and chill for 2 to 3 hours. Or chill until almost set. Chill for several hours before unmolding. 

9. Sprinkle with flake salt if you have. 

10. Serve on apple slices, flaxseed crackers, crostini or your favourite fresh sliced sourdough.
