Organic Heritage Rabbit Liver Pâté

Karissa Cooks! @frannysfarm​​

When it comes to being a chef I really look for the best quality and healthy ingredients. When it comes to being a farmer I can grow, raise, process, and harvest all my ingredients in the most humane way to ensure I know what I am eating. The livers and hearts that I used for this recipe were gifted to me by Little Jaybird Farm who raises all organic, pasture-raised, heritage Silver Fox and American Blue rabbits. I had in fact never had rabbit liver pate before, although I have made many other types, and I always jump at the opportunity to make something new.

First, I diced the onions, garlic and rosemary and sautéed them in butter in a medium to large skillet until softened. Then I added the livers and hearts (seasoned with salt and pepper and kept in their liquid) to the mixture keeping it on a medium-high heat to ensure browning for approximately 5 minutes. Once the pan was nice and hot I added the wine to the mixture. ** Note: You do not want all of the liquid to burn off as it helps in keeping the pate moist once set.**

I reduced the liquid down to ¼ of the original amount and took the pan off the heat. I then transferred the cooked, hot ingredients to a bowl and emersion blender & while blending the mixture I slowly added the cream and additional spices to taste then let it rest in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.  Once the pate was chilled I filled up ½ pint mason jars with it and stored in the fridge. You are more than welcome to can this pate if you can resist from eating it all in a couple of days. It should have a thick mousse texture, once completely set. 

This pate recipe is more of a suggestion that a guideline even though it is absolutely delicious as is. I encourage anyone to change seasonings and herbs to their liking. Everyone has different preferences and pate can be a great pairing with any wine depending on the herbs and spices used. Special thanks to Jennifer Porter, Franny’s Farm Camp Director, for donating her amazing skills and kitchen to this process.
