    Even back when l was a meat eater, l hated liver! 2 me, it was a kin 2 boilin’ some root vegetables w/ w/seasonings in2 a pot of water, then removing the steel toe, from your work boot, the dropping your workboot in2 that water. Cover pot w/ lid, let boot, saute 4 a few hrs, then after those hrs, adjust 2 taste.

    When l became a l’il bit older, however, l have had it prepared, (not 2 where l thought it was scrumptous, mind u) where l found it, edible. My Dad; not usually the cuuk, of the household, decided 2 make some liver, his way, Unlike my Mom, who as l remember it, would lightly season the meat, then, once done, serve it up w/ some vegetables, and call out; dinners’ ready!

    Now don’t get me wrong. My Mom was a gr8 cook, and no doubt, she learned how 2 prepare food, from her Mom. lt was just, the way my Ma learned, didn’t agree w/ my tastebuds, My Pops, on the other hand, when he decided 2 don his chef’s hat, he was amazing! ln this case, he would take a strip of liver (usually, sliced thinly), make his own gravy, cut up some onions, and b4 l knew it, l was asking 4 2nds.

    2 be fair, l really only think my Pops made liver taste, only marginally better, but the addition of onions, and dear God, the gravy, Ed….the gravy l say, just made it 4 a pleasurable dining experience. Anyway, l could go on, but l just ate, and l don’t wanna work up a faux appetite! 🙂
