OFAL - What do you do with it?
As we all know, ofal seems not to everyones liking although I have to say, I love the kidneys and will always find a use for them [as well as some of the liver] but what do you all do with the livers? I have more than I need and can't seem to give it away lately and I can't bring myself to throw it away.
Any help would be appreciated fella's
Local dog rescue might take them off your hands??
Helpful treats when they are trying to train a dog for rehoming...
FRIED VENISON LIVER
1 deer liver, sliced thinly
1 c. flour, seasoned with salt and pepper
2 lg. onions, sliced
Place liver in freezer for 1 hour to make it easier for slicing. Using a thin bladed knife cut slices thinly as possible. Place the seasoned flour on a large piece of waxed paper. Heat one thick cup cooking oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions and fry for about five minutes.
Place onions to one edge of pan. Coat each piece of liver with seasoned flour and fry for about four minutes (two minutes to each side). Don't over cook or liver will be touch. As each batch is cooked transfer it to pre-heated oven and keep warm. When all is cooked serve with onions on heated platter.
LIVER & SOUL CREOLE
4 slices bacon
1/2 lb. liver, venison or beef
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 c. chopped tomatoes
1/4 tsp. cayenne
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. curry
1/2 tsp. pepper
Dice bacon, fry until crisp and remove from fat. Slice liver into pieces about 1/2 x 2 inches. Dredge in flour and brown in bacon fat. Add remaining ingredients and bacon. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Serve with spaghetti or rice. Serves 5.
Or as TJ says donate it.
Sorry all, forget the cooking oil and the butter. Use Carrotino oil. Made from red palm and Canola oil. Brilliant stuff!

Roe-liver, slice it thin and lightly fry it with your bacon after a successful early morning stalk- delicious
I can't stand offal, the dogs like it though. Helps with the BARF diet
If you don't like liver, then cut it up into small cubes and cook it on a low heat in the oven until all the moisture has gone. You can then use these for dog treats - they love them!
I can tell you that as a small game processer/dealer we sell loads of offal from the deer that I shoot off of 2 seperate estates down here in Hampshire, the livers from Roe or yearling sized fallow are great.
This increases the retail value of a carcas by about £7.50, which is not big bucks I know but when you consider that some larger dealers are processing up to 500 deer a week then it soon adds up.
Larger buck sized livers are fine to add to pate but be warned if you feed too much to your dog it kind of comes out like a liver sized squishie dump & is black-not atall nice to be within 50 paces of!
