Tasty Facts

Removing the film from the liver is by far the most labor-intensive moment in the process of its processing and it would seem the most insignificant, but if you do not remove the entire film, then during cooking it will shrink, deforming the delicate liver, making the product dry and rubbery.

The film must be removed even if this requires cutting off thin flaps of the liver.

The liver does not need to be soaked in either water or milk. If the animal grew up on natural feed, then soaking the liver is only for your peace of mind.

You will get better and better at shooting the film every time, but you should start with the liver of young animals, in which the film separates “by itself”.
