STORAGE ADVICE
To maintain the freshness and quality of Calves Liver, proper storage is essential. Store the bag of Calves Liver in the refrigerator at a temperature below 40°F (4°C). It is important to keep the liver well-sealed to prevent any contamination or exposure to air. Properly stored, Calves Liver can be refrigerated for up to 1-2 days. If you don’t plan to use it within that timeframe, you can also freeze the liver. Place it in airtight freezer-safe containers or resealable plastic bags, removing as much air as possible before sealing. Frozen Calves Liver can maintain its quality for approximately 2-3 months. When ready to use, thaw the liver in the refrigerator before cooking. It is important to cook thawed liver promptly and consume it within a few days for the best taste and safety.

To cook calves liver, here’s a set of cooking instructions:

1. Start by rinsing the calves liver under cold water and patting it dry with paper towels.
2. Season the liver with salt and pepper on both sides, according to your taste.
3. Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of oil or butter.
4. Once the oil or butter is hot, carefully place the liver slices in the pan. Make sure not to overcrowd the pan; cook in batches if necessary.
5. Cook the liver for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until it is browned on the outside but still slightly pink in the center. Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the liver slices.
6. Remove the liver from the pan and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. This helps to retain its juiciness.
7. Serve the calves liver with your choice of side dishes, such as sautéed onions, mashed potatoes, or a green salad.

Note: Liver can be cooked to different levels of doneness. Adjust the cooking time accordingly if you prefer it more well-done or less pink in the center.
