Prep Time30 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time40 mins

 1 large clove of garlic
 1 pound (500 g) grain-fed chicken liver
  3 tablespoons ( 42 g) semi salted butter
 half a pound (225 g) of semi salted butter, in 4 pieces
 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of salt
 1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) freshly ground pepper
 1/2 teaspoon (2 ml) ground allspice
 1 tablespoons (15 ml) of dry sherry , brandy or cognac (optional)

1

In a small saucepan, over low heat, put the garlic, cover with water and cook 10 Minutes. Remove garlic from water and reserve.

2

In the meantime: using a small paring knife remove the membranes and small vessels from the livers.

3

In a large skillet, over medium heat, melt the first amount of butter until foamy and cook the livers until brown on the outside and pink on the inside; I use a small knife to check the cooking of each piece. The livers should not touch each other while cooking.

In the bowl of the food processor, put the garlic, livers and remaining ingredients. Mix 1 minute to get a silky puree. Stop and scrape the bowl once or twice while proceeding.
