Liver Treats

June 6, 2008

This is maybe the nastiest thing I’ve ever made, so I made it in Andy’s kitchen. He locked himself in the office at the point that the liver paste exploded onto the wall.

2 lbs chicken livers
½ cup molasses
1 cup whole wheat flour
½ cup corn meal
½ chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp garlic powder

Boil chicken livers in just enough water to cover, until they turn grey. Drain. Puree livers. I used a stick blender for this. My mistake (for the record: Andy told me so.) was in not using the blending cup that came with it.

Add remaining ingredients to puree. Stir until combined. This will be an extremely thick paste. Spread into a greased 13X9 inch baking dish. Bake at 250ºF for 30 minutes. Cut into bite sized squares. Bake an additional hour. Turn out of pan and allow to cool. The treats will be extremely dense, but not totally dry, so they won’t keep forever. Freeze.

Both dogs seem to like them a lot. I tried one myself, but I’m not yet ready to discuss the experience.
