Hi folks, silly question but please; I made some chicken liver pate but have too much, can I freeze it ? the chicken livers were frozen originally, well not exactly originally cos they were in a checken, but you know what I mean¦¦


You can definitely freeze your pate. Put any surplus into small dishes or pots & pour melted butter over the top to seal (best is clarified unsalted butter). This will keep the pate moister while frozen. Wrap each pot in cling film & then pop into a Zip-loc freezer bag. I usually make a large amount & pot up into smaller pots of one or two portions. It is very useful to have them in the freezer as small pots defrost faster. Eat within 4>6 weeks for best flavour & texture.

Hope that helps.  smile

Hattie, knight(ess) in shining armour many thanks.


It wont last longer than a couple of weeks anyway as it is so much better than the shop bought stuff. I have it in some small ramakins so am already 75% of the way.


Thanks again....
