Category: Appetizers

 Ingredients List

  • 1 tb Clarified butter (well; I
  • -didn't see the need to
  • -clarify it)
  • 1 md Yellow onion; diced
  • -medium
  • 1 lg Golden Delicious apple;
  • -peel; core and chop
  • 1 lb Chicken livers
  • 1/4 c Medium green chile peppers
  • -(i grabbed about 1/3 cup of
  • -mixed New Mex and Poblanos
  • -from the freezer) roasted;
  • -seeded and peeled; then
  • -chopped
  • 1/4 ts Ground coriander
  • 1/4 ts Ground allspice
  • 1/4 ts Ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 ts Ground cloves
  • 1/8 ts Ground cardamom
  • 2 tb Brandy (I used dark rum and
  • -sherry; 1 tbs each, not
  • -having any)
  • 1/2 lb Butter; cut into chunks (I
  • -used somewhat less)


Saute the onions in the clarified butter over medium high heat for about 5
minutes (should be translucent). Add apples, saute until soft (3-5 min).

Add chicken livers and saute until just cooked (5 min, should still be pink
in the center).

Add chiles and spices and brandy. Stir well and remove from stove. Let
cool for 15 min.

Blend in food processor. Add butter chunks while blending; keep churning
until well pureed.

Pour the mixture into an 8" lightly oiled loaf pan (I used teflon and
didn't oil it). Cover with plastic wrap and let sit in fridge at least
overnight. (I ate some leftover tonight and it was even better 3 days
later, though the heat from the chiles was much reduced).

Place the pan briefly in hot water to loosen, then invert over serving
plate. If you don't use all the butter, it will be pretty soft at room

Serving Suggestion: Pate is traditionally served on a dark bread with
mustard and small gherkin type pickles, or with sliced red onion.
