Tasty pate recipe with chicken liver

You can always diversify the flavor of your pate by adding dried berries and fruits. As an example, last time I used dried cranberries. They give a slight acidity that nicely complements the taste of the paste. Take dried berries and cover them with hot boiled water, in 10 minutes they will get swollen. Drain excess water and pat cranberries with paper towels until they are dry. Cut them into the smallest pieces you can and add to already blended liver with vegetables before transferring paste into the forms/bowls.

I like this recipe as thanks to it I have fresh product without any artificial ingredients, preservatives and the level of saltiness and seasoning that I can control. If you have any questions on the recipe, leave them in the comment section below.
