Toxins the body cannot eliminate are likely to accumulate in the bodyís fatty tissues and nervous systems. On the other hand, the liver is a storage organ for many important nutrients (vitamins A, D, E, K, B12 and folic acid, and minerals such as copper and iron). These nutrients provide the body with some of the tools it needs to get rid of toxins."

https://chriskresser.com/natures-most-potent-superfood/


"The liver is often described as an organ that "filters" your blood of toxins, which may seem concerning in terms of eating it. In reality, laboratory analysis has proven that liver is actually completely safe for consumption and has no higher concentration of toxins than the rest of the body. This is due to the fact that your liver is not really a "filter," but more of a chemical processing plant, rendering toxins inert and shuttling them out of your body. If your liver contains large amounts of toxins, so do you! And the same goes for the animals you consume. What this means is, the cleaner the animal whose organs you are consuming, the cleaner your food will be, whether it's a steak or an organ."

Thanks for taking time to explain, I never knew. My dad LOVED fried chicken livers and onions, but I grew up watching Boss Hogg eat raw liver.....I cant get past that

That's where I am at, no one here likes it except me.

I do remember when the kids were young I bbq'ed some chicken livers wrapped with bacon then coated them with the Salt Licks sweet sauce. I brought the plate in and set in on the table and went about cooking the rest of the bbq. They were all gobbling them down then asked what it was, once told they ate no more.

Re: Any Of You Cook?


My Mother is half blooded First Nation, Iroquois, Seneca Tribe. My Granny was full blood. So we grew up eating organ meats. I also love heart meat. And beef sweetbread is a delicacy IMO.

Kidney is horrible, stomach (tripe) is freakin nasty too (texture freaks me out). Spleen and pancreas? I dont care how it's prepared it's still foul tasting.

Organ meats are super packed with vitamins and minerals and should never be overcooked as it will kill off all the good stuff. I like outside of it browned nicely and the inside pink.

Eyeballs are supposed to be super-nutritious as well but I don't think I could do it..lol. Brain too. But no thanks. Mad Cow Dz. comes to mind.

After a kill, wild animals almost always eat the organ meat first. They know.

And yeah regular commerical and restaurant liver is horrid, I wouldn't touch that crap. I also have a local bud who bootlegs organic grass fed liver, great stuff at 5 bucks per pound. Tender and tasty. Many of the healthfood stores sell it as well.

And then of course here in CO we got those Rocky Mountain Oysters. Fried animal testicles (mostly bull or sheep). I'll eat them but a lot depends on what animal its from and how it's cut. Some of the texture is gritty and others is quite nice, but if you slice it thin and batter it up it's pretty good. Plus most folks dip it in hot sauce, BBQ sauce, Ranch dressing, etc.

Re: Any Of You Cook?


Went to a wild game dinner at a local church this evening with my oldest grand daughter that lives here. We had a great time and left stuffed. I thought the best thing they had was the BBQ'ed axis deer. I've never had much luck BBQing venison so I was impressed.

I think my grand daughter like the desserts best, she used all the ten bucks momma gave her buying them, most of which she brought home for her siblings. The kids from the church made all the desserts which all looked good.

They must have feed several hundred people which considering the size of the town here that's a lot. We were interviewed by the local paper's reporter there and grand daughter is looking forward to seeing her name mentioned in the paper.

Re: Any Of You Cook?


January 26th 2017 my friend Jim was in the garage, he came over to return an empty soup container, split pea I had made. He brought us some humus he had made. My wife popped in to say hi. Jim and I bounced recipes off each other. Cake came up, I mentioned I want to do a pound cake, told him I'd bring some over on Sunday. That was the last time I saw Jim alive. A heart attack took him about 5 AM on the 27th.

It took me a year, but I finally made the pound cake. Jim loved music. I'm not sure how high Elvis is on his list of favs. The pound cake I made is the recipe "Elvis Presley's favorite pound cake".

LOL C'mon sweetbreads are the best part of the animal, and heart is tough to tell from any other tough cut of meat. You could feed those to anyone and they would love em.

Pancreas is the poor man's sweetbread, it's still delicious but not nearly as good as the thymus gland. Tripe I've eaten my whole life so I kinda like the texture.

Spleen is foul.

Personally I prefer good fish over redmeats or poultry anyday. I could eat fish everyday. CO lakes and rivers have great trout and salmon in my region, my two favorites. And the fishheads go in my greenhouse beds, great fertilizer.

Hard to believe for some but we have one of the top 100 trout streams in the country nearby, the Guadalupe river. TU stocks big rainbows and browns along with parks and wildlife stocking. Most are caught or die off from moving too far downstream where the water gets too warm. Some do make it tho and they call them "holdovers". The holdovers meat turns from whitish like the stockers to reddish like salmon. Grilled it's some fine eating.
