has anyone done this with frozen liver?

I'm really looking to get into organ meats for my health and i've been working up to doing GAPS to heal and seal my gut for a while now. I read the weston a. price liver files that someone had posted a link to, specifically this tip: "Cut fresh liver into pea-sized pieces and freeze for 14 days. Swallow like vitamin pills."

has anyone done this with liver or other organ meats? i wondered if it would be assimilated well even though it's not being chewed? hopefully there are some liver lovers out there who've tried this and can help.

Depends largely on whether you trust the source. I'd guess that liver is no more or less likely to become infected than other animal tissue, but most local farmers raise their animals well (i.e. don't let them get sick) and are very prompt with freezing the meat. I wouldn't worry about it very much :)

I do this too. You can almost not taste it.

I've read on here of people cutting a slice off of frozen liver. Not chewing wont stop the absorption of nutrients. I am a liver fan so prefer o eat seared with bacon and onions!

I am not a liver lover but I have been trying this. Got my hands on some good grass-fed beef liver (so cheap compared to other meat - wish I could eat it like a steak). My advice, cut it into really really small pieces. Doesn't go down as easily as swallowing a tablet. It all gets digested in the stomach eventually though.

My whole family now eats raw liver (after being frozen for 14 days) - not as bad as it sounds really. My 13 year old daughter will eat raw steak too (sliced thin with some salt & pepper). We have also added liver to home made hamburgers and stews. Also making liver pate is great - can experiment with different spices.

If you chop up pastured chicken livers and mix it into your ground beef, it makes for a delicious burger patty with all the nutritional benefits of liver, sans the taste!

Is raw liver safe?
