I always julienne them. I don't want a big piece of green bell pepper in my mouth.

I really like the convenience of having individual 4 oz. cryo-vac packages of each slice. Getting it in fresh packages has always been a problem. How much to get? Now I can just thaw (and at that thickness they thaw within minutes in a warm water bath) and I can turn 12 oz. of frozen calf liver into a nice calf liver dinner within minutes.

The liver cooks qukcily. It's the onions that take up the time.

You should understand that green, yellow and red bell peppers differ only in their degree of ripeness.

They all start out green. Some go straight from green to red. Others go from green to yellow and never change colour after that. Addie did mention that the green ones were not ripe.

Little I did I know what I would unearth when I asked this question. Liver seems to be the consensus. Too bad. It is loaded with iron. Something a lot of women need more of. It is high in Vitamin A so should be eaten in small amounts. You can get Vitamin A poisoning from eating too much at one sitting or eating it consistently on a daily basis. Something I would gladly do if I didn't know the dangers.

With Beagle being so sick and unable to eat, I've been doing a lot of reseach as to what's good for dogs. They don't recommend liver for dogs either, except in small amounts, for the same reason, which is weird as liver is an ingredient in many dog treats.

You really do need to look at what is in those dog foods and treats. Just like you do for human food. If liver is one of the first three foods listed, I would find another brand.

Teddy loves liverwurst. But I refused to share any with him. I no longer will munch on it if he is here. Why tease him? H is so spoiled with fresh meats, that he no longer even will eat his dry food.
