I had an upstairs neighbor whose daughter had severe anemia. The doctor told her to cook some liver just above raw. The girl would chew it to death, but just refused to swallow it. Her mother felt fine with her doing this. At least she was getting the juices from the meat into her system. I have often wondered if the girl ever did learn to like liver.

I'm upset that I had to stop eating liver once a week and for snacks during the week...

I could not eat liver than was pink inside. It has to be cooked through, just not cooked to death.

I can eat steak that is pink, or even red inside. Just not liver.

You're one up on me. I can't eat ANY meat that shows any pink at all. Instant gag reaction. I can tell from the taste and texture if I happen not to see it before sticking it in my mouth. Can't do it.

Partially raw liver is RIGHT out.

I do not like caviar, and Papa catches the sturgeons in the Black Sea for it.

Those are ugly fishes, also! Uckkkkkkk!

That is the only way to cook liver, especially the chicken liver. Blood should still ooze out of it when you cut it. Cooked anything over that and might as well throw the whole thing away. Yuk.

Cat, when he goes out from port, how long is he gone for? My husband would be gone anywhere from 15 to 30 days at a time.

Well, I don't share your opinion.
