MMMMMM Bacon-like!

Actually, I do enjoy crisped bird and even many crisped fish skins.

Hey the Japanese have been putting crispy salmon skin in sushi for a long time, there's something to be said about it!

Hm wow lots of neat ideas, I will have to try some these.

So far I've been simply thawing the beef liver, leaving it raw, cutting into small pieces with kitchen shears, and mixing with homemade lactofermented mustard, and bamn, down the hatch. Not bad at all really and it is really fast. It's a challenge to down a 1lb of beef liver within a day or two that way, but my cat is always there and more than willing to help me out (sans the mustard of course).

Sometimes if I think of it in advance, I cover the liver with cold water and add a bit of vinegar and let it sit overnight in the fridge. That does seem to make it a bit tastier. Supposedly it helps draw out any toxins in the liver though I'm not sure.

I remember reading that somewhere too, something about people dying after eating polar bear liver, and it being attributed to vitamin D poisoning. But then much much later it was discovered it wasn't vitamin D poisoning at all, it was in fact cadmium poisoning, that the polar bear livers had concentrated cadmium into them?

I agree with this thought also. My pork has to be purchased fresh from one of the farmers up here but it sure is tasty!

Sure absolutely the cat should get some and other organ meats and innards as well. Doesn't need to be cooked though esp for a cat. Cats don't cook mice or grasshopers or anything they catch in the field, they just eat it.

I'm all for eating good tasting food, but for me knowing it is something that is good to eat makes it taste good too. Liver and other organs are very missing from a typical 'modern' diet. There's a reason cats and other animals dive right into the organs and other innards and fatty parts, and often leave the lean muscle meat for the scavengers.

Agreed! Look at many of the third world diets, they still ingest nearly every scrap of any animal (protein) they obtain often including insects, grubs and worms.

Absolutely, interesting you mention insects. I've been wanting to look into that more. One of the best 'nutrition' books I've ever read, Cure Tooth Decay, mentions it briefly, but the author thought it was so 'fringe' he didn't really go into depth about it.
