Chicken Liver Pate with Canadian Maple Whiskey

Ingredients as follows:

Step 1…..

Cook the following together in a skillet

  • 1 red medium onion, chopped fine
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon of thyme and 1/4 teaspoon of basil
  • 1/2 cup butter and a little olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 500 Grams (1lb.)  chicken livers , patted dry and  trimmed
  • ¼ cup Canadian Maple Whiskey to the mixture once the livers are done & 1 shot for the cook.

Step 2 …..

Place above in food processor once cooked and combine. After blended, add the following to the food processor and continue blending briefly ( you do want bits !)

  • ½ cup of butter (If you are going to be bad, you may as well be very bad!)
  • ¼ cup of toasted almond
  • ¼  cup of dried cranberries

Step 4 …….

Pour the mixture into a ramekin and place into the fridge topped with a wrap so it won’t form a skin. There is nothing set in stone, so feel confident to add or delete items as you see fit. Anyone can cook !

Serve at room temperature.  I enjoy this pate on a slice of toasted baguette but the delivery system is your choice. ………….ENJOY !
