When I started leaning towards TF I told my mom about it.  She gave me several beef livers that she had in her freezer, some since '09.  There's from steers they raised so I feel comfortable eating the livers.  The problem is they're in very thin bags and are freezer burned.  I thought that it would be best to make stock from them.  That way a lot of the nutrients would be in the stock and I wouldn't have to eat freezer burned liver.  Yuck.

 

The second portion to this is I have backyard chickens and I'm considering feeding the cooked liver to them since they're omnivorous.

 

Any thoughts on either matter?  TIA!

First, don't put liver in stock.  That would make the stock taste, well, not good. wink1.gif

 

Second, just thaw it and feed it to your chickens raw.  no need to cook it!
