I'm looking for new things to feed my nearly 10m dd who hasn't turned her nose up at anything yet! Can she eat chicken livers? I don't know if I'm just being careful because liver is on the pregnancy taboo list or if I've read somewhere that she can't have it until she's 1yo. Thanks.

liver is a fabulous source of iron, I remember cooking chicken livers for you've reminded me I must go & get some for dd2
I don't remember anything about having to be a year old.

Hi, the easiest way to cook liver is to wash it, roll it in some flour and then fry it. Delicious, - and you've just made me think I want liver and onions for tea! (But darn it, haven't got any liver in... )

I'm sure there's tons of gorgeous recipes for liver out there but I don't know any. The only other thing that comes to mind is a recipe I saw involving pasta and liver but to my mind that sounds yelch.

Mmmmmmm, yum. Liver 'n' onions - my fave, especially if it's fried with loads of basil.

You can't always find chicken livers at the supermarket, so I buy some whenever I can and keep it in the freezer.

Calf's liver is an excellent finger food if you cut it in strips before frying - chicken liver is too soft and squidgy for finger food, which is prob why my dd thinks it makes an excellent face-pack

An update - I got hold of an Anabel Karmel recipe which dd loved last night. 2 chicken livers, 1oz leek, 2oz carrot, 1oz mushrooms all cooked for 8mins in 120ml chicken stock. Puree this mixture and mix with 1 cooked and mashed potato.

I confess to even having a bit myself
