  • Heat up 1 tbsp of the butter or ghee in a frying pan. Fry the onion until it is translucent.
  • Add the livers and cook for 2/3 minutes on each side.
  • Stir in the garlic, most of the thyme, apple juice and apple, and cook for a minute.
  • Put it all into the food processor. Blend until smooth.
  • Then add the other tbsp of butter/ghee and whizz up again.
  • Pour into a jar or small bowl. Pop the remaining thyme on top.
  • Melt the final tbsp of butter/ghee and pour over the top. Leave to cool.


Cooks’ Tips:
  • I put into two tubs, one I freeze and the other is ready to go.
  • Eat within TWO days of making if not freezing and after freezing.  Usually, meat has a three-day grace, but with this pate, that is shortened.
  • To make it dairy-free we love using Tiana Spreadable as this contains some healthy dairy-free oils. You can also try organic dairy-free spread.
