       Title: CHOPPED LIVER II
  Categories: Poultry, Jewish, Usenet
       Yield: 4 servings
       1 lb Chicken livers
       1 lg Onion
       2    Garlic cloves
       3 T  Schmaltz (chicken fat;
            -see note below)
       3    Eggs, hard-boiled
   Melt the schmaltz in a large frying pan.  Saute the onions and garlic in
   the schmaltz until the onions are tender. Add the chicken livers and saute
   until done. (Livers are done when they are no longer red or pink on the
   Chop the cooked livers and onions, along with the hard boiled eggs.  I
   always chop by hand, using a chopper and a wooden bowl. Regardless of how
   you chop them, they should be fairly coarsely chopped. Season with a little
   salt and a little more melted schmaltz if things are dry.
   *  Chopped liver Just like Mom used to make -- This is NOT liver pate; it’s
   chopped liver.  And lots of folks who claim to hate liver love this stuff.
   *  Schmaltz is rendered (melted) chicken fat.  If you want to make your own
   (which I recommend), get some chicken fat (from the butcher, or from a
   chicken you fix; one chicken’s fat is plenty). Put the fat in a frying pan
   on low heat. Stir the pieces of fat frequently; if there’s lots of fat, you
   can drain the pan into a container to keep things from splattering too
   much. The fat will eventually melt down to a tough, dry blob (the
   griveners, which are pure poison, but I love 'em!), at which point you're
   done rendering.  The liquid fat is the schmaltz.
   : Difficulty:  easy.
   : Time:  30 minutes.
   : Precision:  no need to measure.
