OK just a couple questions....

I had frozen liver that I had to slightly thaw to be able to unwrap. I cut it into pieces and refroze it. Do I have to wait another 14 days before dd can eat it raw grated into her egg yolk?

Then once it is frozen solid how do I grate it?? Just with a cheese grater??

And how much would I add to one egg yolk??

Anything else I need to know about liver, or any meat for that matter, and babies??

TIA!!!

I would check Kellymom for meat suggestions.

The only thing I would be concerned about is - is the liver organic or feild raised? I think liver is probably pretty nutritional, but if the meat is conventionally raised, I wouldn't use it. The liver processes a lot of crap we get in our environment and if the animal has been exposed to unhealthy practices, it will be "contaminated".

Oh I wouldn't have even bought it if it wasn't good. It's from my milk supplier and it's her personal stash. I mentioned that I was saving money to order a small amount online and she let me go in her freezer and pick out a few things.

Thanks for the suggestion I'll go over to Kellymom.

The 14 days frozen thing is to kill possible parasites, so I can't imagine that thawing a little and refreezing would be a problem if the ilver had already been frozen 14 days before it was refrozen. I use a fine microplane grater for my frozen liver, but any fine grater would work. As to how much, an egg yolk isn't very big, so maybe a 1/4 teaspoon?
