It's fine, but I don't go out of my way to buy it. I might buy some twice a year. Give some extra blood so shed the excess iron that liver contains. Most middle aged and older males have too much iron in their bodies.

I never liked liver..we used to eat liver with fried onions and browned apples and mashed potatoes. Took me forever to finish my meal.

I just got back from the kosher deli with some fabulous chopped liver with caramelized onion. Paired with the hot-out-of-the-wood-burning oven sesame bagel I'm eating....heaven.

Mmmmm...sounds delicious! Now I want some chopped liver.

I've never had liver & onions with bacon....I've always thought it was too much fat, but I really only eat it a few times a year. Guess that wouldn't hurt me.

Fresh thinly sliced pork liver fried in dark soy sauce/ oyster sauce with some finely shredded ginger and some chops of spring onions fry together. Don't overcook or it can go hard, it should be just cooked so it taste tender and juicy. Served with white rice. I'm hungry now...

I keep hearing abut how gorgeous goose liver is so I cooked up fresh goose livers the last time I butchered geese and I nearly puked. That is really foul stuff. My dogs eat all the goose livers. They smell so bad, I can barely stand to cook them.

(Adding this: my sister who loves liver is a very fussy eater. I will eat darn near anything, but can not tolerate the smell or taste of organ meats)
I think much older Americans did grow up eating it more than younger Americans but to see that difference I think you'd have to poll people over about 80 years old.

Not quite in my 80s still have about 6 years to go. but it does seem in the 1940s we did eat a lot of liver. Mainly because it was all many families could afford. Believe me when you are hungry you do develop a taste for it.

I am in my thirties. I like chicken livers (breaded and fried, natch), am fairly anti-beef liver, although my husband says it's just because I've never had HIS liver and onions, and I LOOOOOVE braunschweiger/liverwurst and most pate. I would not say it's a common thing for people in my age bracket to eat, outside of maybe chicken livers, if they grew up, like I did, with a fried chicken place where they were a standard delicacy.

As an anemic, I often have beef liver recommended to me to up my iron levels, but it's my least favorite kind of liver.

Odd being somewhat anemic myself, I find when my iron is low I get a very strong craving for liver, any type. But I usually settle for my iron tablets.

Under 45 and I love liver, but haven't had it since I was a kid. My mom made it with Worchester sauce and onions and I remember it being delicious.

Also a bit anemic in this household, we supplement the red meat with some Blackstrap Molasses. I put it in my coffee every morning.
