I finally got to make more chicken liver pate for Ruth last night. For now I will be giving her this for breakfast (as she only wakes after 8:30 at the moment) and I hope it will help lift her iron levels and give her a bit more energy.
150 - 200g butter
3 onions (not too big)
5 garlic cloves
mixed spice (I added just a little this time to try it)
Cook all the ingredients except the liver and orange juice till soft. Add liver and cook till no longer pink. Allow to cool off a bit before blending to a smooth paste. Allow to cool off a bit more before adding the orange juice (heat will destroy the vit C and the Vit C helps the body absorb the iron). Add enough to make the mixture soft. Remember that when it sets the butter will make it harder. I store it in these little containers in the freezer and just take them out as needed.
And if you want more details then this was the original recipe that I worked from:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup onion
1 large garlic clove
1/4 tsp each of thyme, marjoram, sage, pepper
3/4 tsp slat
1/8 tsp all spice
2 tbs orange juice
