it’s also very nice, still warm.

This isn’t really pâté, the first time I ever made it, it was meant to be, but it was a little too wet, nevertheless it was still really tasty and it became one of those things I make now and then, sometimes we have it hot, sometimes cold.
This time round we had it cold with warm bread and a cranberry and red onion chutney.

So for want of a better description this is:

Mashed liver terrine

pate prep

I cooked off the onions in butter, I didn’t bother chopping everything up small because I had borrowed my mums food processor and would give it a whizz up in that, if I hadn’t, I’d have chpped it all much finer and mashed it after it was cooked.

Then I added bacon, mushrooms, garlic, thyme, black pepper, salt, lemon juice and brandy.

add everything

Then flung in the livers and cooked everything off slowly.

until brown

I put the lot in the food processor and whizzed it up and then put it into a cling film lined loaf tin, it doesn’t look very appetising, but it is..

put in dish

After it had been in the fridge for about 3 hours, it was ready.

it’s also very nice, still warm.

I’m quite tempted to make my own chutney, perhaps onion and plum, because it really does go well with it.
