OK...usually you either love it or hate it. I come from a long line of liver lovers...my favorite is baby calf liver and onions, but I love chicken livers too. How about you...and let's find out your age group. It seems to me that more older people love liver.

I love chicken livers. Like calf's liver. Am indifferent towards beef or deer liver.
I guess I am part of the older crowd. 54

I am over 60. Hate any & all liver. Nasty. Oh, and aren't organ meats supposed to be unhealthy? Sorry.

Yes, I guess organ meats aren't the healthiest food around. It's a good source of iron though. I probably wouldn't want liver every day. It's something I eat maybe once a month, but I do love it with onions when it is cooked properly.

Wish I was because its so good for you but I can't stand calf liver. My parents loved it but I never could eat it altho I tried alot ;so they eventually cooked me something else.

I'm 26 and I like eating liver, but it has a very rich taste and I'm unable to eat too much of it.

I really prefer heart, I think that's the best organ to eat.

I don't think age has anything to do with it. I've never been able to eat it and my sister loves it. We are close to the same age and our different reaction to liver was from day dot. Neither one of us changed out minds about it as we got older.

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)

73 year old: I really like liver.....fried with onions and bacon, or chicken livers....or chopped chicken liver pate.

When I was a kid my father used to cook the liver...and he had been raised vegetarian....and he was suspicious of meat and tended to over cook it. Liver he really massacred! He'd heat up the black cast iron pan as hot as he could get it....put a little fat in the pan....and then drop that poor unsuspecting liver on the hot pan and cook the bejesus out of it. I can still visualize that liver contracting in the pan. When Dad served it.....it was hard on the outside and dry through and through.

It wasn't until I was grown I found out how delicious liver could be and that cooking shouldn't be like a scene from the exorcist. I like my liver cooked on low heat......so it retains its moist tender lusciousness.

I think liver should only be cooked by people who like it.....other wise it gets ruined.
