Deer liver, prep and freezing?
« on: November 26, 2008, 01:49:50 PM »
Just got the call my good friend is back from his Neb Whity hunt. He has 2 livers for me to pick up after work. Normally we eat em so fast but I have 2 and want to freeze some.

Looking for tips on freezing and your soak processes. I usaually soak in Milk for a couple hrs. Then cook.

Do you guys freeze it? I dont have a vacume packer. Usaually use freezer bags.

Thanks.
I do what the voices in my tackle box tell me to.

I have frozen deer livers in freezer bags and they have been fine. I usually double bag them and have used them 6 months later and they were great. I just roll them in flour, brown them on both sides in bacon grease, then cover them with onions and put water in the skillet to the top of the liver and let it simmer down to its own gravy and serve with mashed potatoes.  :drool: mmm mmm im hungry!

I prepare my deer liver by carefully removing it from the body cavity of my animal, then hucking that toxin filter away for the scavengers!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

 :)Elkoholic is almost right, except he left out in the end you gotta remove the water(gravy and onions) and re-brown a little, I hate mushy coatings, they need to be crisped up a little, then served and the gravy put on top.

We cut and wrap in two layers of plastic wrap, then one layer of butcher paper to protect the plastic. Have had liver stored 2+ years this way, looks as good as new when you thaw it to cook.

We rinse the liver, then flour dredge (with pepper) and cook hot in bacon grease....onions are already done on the side to keep the coating firm on the liver. Best fresh, but frozen is almost as good.

All you sissy's who are afraid to eat liver.. :ass:      :chuckle:

Ever eat a hot dog, salami or balogna? These products are made from the cutting room floor rinse/wash....

I have tried many ways but I now throw it away unless someone else wants it, we have evolved as humans and eat better meat now.

Amost word for word what I was going to post.
When my grandfather was alive we always had to bring him the liver. Now, most of the time I leave them lay. Now the heart, that is my favorite.

Soak it over night in water, and vacuum pack it. Flower, brown it, add onions and water, and cover and simmer.
