Aha! Your post didn't make that clear. I know some folks who thought the livers they had were "pate." and I didn't want that to happen to you.

I love when "goodies" like that come my way. A year or so ago I ordered chicken livers from my poultry farmer, and they asked me if I "minded" if they subbed duck livers at the same price.......

Sorry if it was unclear.


Did you tell them you would suck it up and then double the order?

I have made pate out of duck, chicken and now goose livers. I think I like the duck best, but the goose didn't suck. The chicken seems to produce a harsher pate. The goose was a tad stronger than the duck, but that could be because of the wild goose as opposed to the farmed duck.

Can't post the recipe here because it's copyright by another author, but I have a great recipe for chicken liver "mousse" that really smooths out that flavor you are finding harsh. I can pm it to you later, if you'd like.

I actually used those particular duck livers for bruschetta topping, embellished with a little garlic and dry Marsala.

So I'm thinking why is she worried about pigeons ( we used to call them city rats or flying rats), then I realized you meant real honest-to-god rat rats. I'd be concerned too.

I was confused for a minute too Dave about the difference between city rats and country rats. City rats dress up for dinner I think.

Country rats are easy going. City rats pack, wear bandannas and try to rule the neighborhood.

We needed a new trash can a few years ago so I bought this nice wheeled jobbie. It took the rats one night to chew through the heavy rubbermaid thing and get to the trash. A couple nights later they had a second hole, near the bottom this time. We have metal cans now, and I am surprised they don't just knock em over or take a torch to them.

No rats though.
