Delicious Christmas Liver Pate

FiveEuroFood's picture
A great dish to serve around Christmas time - You can replace the port with something like sherry in a pinch, perhaps even brandy, but it's not quite the same. Really easy to make and has a fantastically luxurious taste - no-one will ever know it only cost about €3.50 to make! It's also my first video post ever! You can still find the usual recipe process and photos under the video below. Please enjoy the video and be patient while I get to grips with video editing and sound levels and so forth.
  Chicken livers 400 Gram
  Onion 1
  Cream 2 Deciliter
  Port wine/Sherry 1 Deciliter
  Thyme 3 Teaspoon
  Butter 65 Gram
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

1. Chop the onions and keep aside.
2. Remove the excess fat from the chicken livers.

3. Melt the 20g of Butter in a hot frying pan and when melted, add in the onion and fry until a glossy golden color.
4. Add the chicken livers to the pan with the onion. Continue to fry until the livers are browned.
5. Gently add in the cream and and port, along with some thyme, salt and pepper.
6. Turn down the heat and simmer gently for around 15-25 minutes, until you can draw a spoon through the mix and leave a dry line in the pan.
7. Wash your canning jar, turn on your oven to around 140 degrees Celsius and put your jar(s) inside – leave them here for about 10-15 minutes to sterilize the jars.
8. When the mix has been sufficiently thickened, add to a food processor and blend until smooth, around 30 seconds.
9. Transfer to your sterilized jar and seal up.
10. Allow to cool completely before storing in the refrigerator. Will keep for about a week or so.

11. Eat with some good fresh bread, maybe some pickles, and enjoy!
