Husband brought home a deer liver...

What should I do with it?! He's a hunter and doesn't want it to go to waste... he likes liver, but I'm not sure how to prepare it for him!

I'm sure I'd make pâté out of it. And yes, soak it in milk a few hours before doing anything with it to help it be less :gamey."

I have no idea, but I got a kick out of this headline and imagining your expression when he produced his deer liver. I hope it was slightly more enthusiastic than when the cat proudly offers you a dead mouse as a hostess gift.

A humble tip for your "hunter/gatherer" If you like the liver to taste a bit less gamey you can soak it in milk in the fridge for a few hours, then prepare it as you would any liver. I would slice it dredge in a flour sprinkle with salt pepper and some fresh rosemary. Brown in frypan with olive oil and a "thumb" of butter and then finish in the oven for just a few minutes. Don't want to over cook it, its a very delicate meat. I sometimes squeeze fresh lemon on as it is served. Enjoy!
