Fresh calves liver; where can I buy it?
I've called several butchers in the Seattle and Bellevue area, but I cannot find fresh calves liver anywhere. A & J Meats sells it frozen, but it's not the same! Any thoughts?
Wrong time of year, I think. Calves are just being born about now, not slaughtered.
If you're really nice to the folks at Sea Breeze Farms, maybe you can work something out with them for a fresh liver later in the year?
There's a vendor at the Ballard farmers' market who sells pasture-raised veal (not Sea Breeze). I don't remember the name of the farm, but I'll peek if I'm there this weekend. Maybe they'd do calves' liver. If that doesn't work out, I second the suggestion of talking to Sea Breeze and planning ahead.
Not in the same league, but the only place I see calves liver has been West Seattle's Metropolitan Market....
