bleh. Liver is an organ that, among other things, functions as a waste removal, bacteria removal and basically a filter for anything gross that is in your body. Not appetizing at all.

All of the above! I'm 54, loved liver as a kid too! My mom use to cook it just right and now I do too!

I suffer from borderline gout and have to avoid all organ meats. However, I'll take fried baby beef liver smothered in onions and bacon over filet mignon or prime rib any day of the week.

I hate it! When I was a kid my mother used to cook liver and she made me eat it because it's high in iron. Now that I'm in my 30's and she's in her 50's, she tells me that she doesn't like it and never cooks it anymore.

I would have eaten a whole pot of spinach over a tiny piece of liver, but I don't remember her ever cooking spinach.

Baby calf or baby beef liver is still veal, and I absolutely will not put veal in my mouth.
Having said that, I do love chicken livers.
Moist chopped liver from the Jewish deli...heaven.
Teriyaki chicken liver...delicious.
Fried chicken liver with caramelized onions....yum!

My appetite for liver has fluctuated over the years. I hated liver as a child, enjoyed it as an adult and settled on it does not appeal to me at all. The liver is a major organ responsible for detoxifying the body - I suspect that domesticated animals that are used for food these days have a much greater toxicity load than say 70 years ago. This in itself makes the liver unappetizing to me.

I love fried chicken livers and gizzards - yum. I don't have a problem with organ meats - my favorite organ meat of all time is sautéed lamb's kidneys.

Have you seen the price of gizzards lately? Holy crap!
When I was little and my mom used to make giblet and chicken heart stew as a comfort food when I was sick, you could barely GIVE that stuff away.

I am 34 and from Germany - and I love liver wurst! In Germany many local butchers still make their own, sometimes several different kinds. When I was living in the U.S. I really missed it.

A nice chunky liver wurst on freshly baked whole grain bread, just one of life's simple pleasures


Liver with brown onions and home made mashed potatoes is also a very delicious, hearty meal.
