  • Trim veal or chicken and pork of excess fat and tendons.Cut into 1" cubes & pass through a meat grinder. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in salt, pepper & applejack. Cover the pate and refrigerate 1-3 days. Remove and heat oil in a medium skillet over high heat. Sauté livers until well browned, about 1 min per side. Remove from pan and set aside to cool.

Scrape bottom of pan to loosen brown bits & cook over low heat until warm, about 5 mins. Set aside to cool and remove and discard bay leaves. Dip white bread in warm water to soften.

  • Put a large, heavy sauté pan over medium heat, and melt 4 tablespoons of the butter until it begins to foam. Add the shallots, and sauté them until translucent, being careful not to allow them to brown. Add the livers, thyme and Madeira or port, and bring the heat to high. Cook, occasionally stirring the livers around in the pan with a spoon, until the wine has reduced and the livers are lightly browned but still very soft and pink on the inside, approximately 5 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the stove, and put its contents into a blender or food processor, along with the cream and the remaining butter. Purée until smooth, adding a little more cream if necessary. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding salt if necessary.
  • Pack the pâté into a glass jar or bowl, then smooth the top with a spatula. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about two hours or up to five days. Serve with bacon-onion jam and copious amounts of toast.
