Eeeeeeeeew. Why did I buy the stuff? Well, I’m committed. Here’s a recipe from Chocolate and Zucchini that looks pretty good.
My mom says the kidneys need to be washed thoroughly to get rid of the smell. Also, I’m supposed to use one part and throw away another. I need to research this more thoroughly.
The vendor told me to roast the marrow bones at 400 degrees for about an hour. Various websites say to roast them at 425 or 450 for 2o minutes or less. The key is to watch for when the marrow starts dribbling out.
At the farmer’s market, the vendor’s suggestion for both liver and kidneys was simply to slice it thin and fry it up with some veggies.
There are lots of suggestions on how to cook liver at the Weston. A. Price Foundation website. This one seems simplest.
- Marinate slices of liver in the fridge overnight in lemon juice or water with vinegar, plus lots of garlic and bay laurel leaf. After marinating, pat dry and fry in olive oil and/or lard and/or butter until well done (really brown on the outside and slightly rose inside). (Kidneys work well with this recipe also.) The key is marinating to take away any unpleasant taste. Florabela
