This month’s feature is Canned Cod Livers. As the weather gets colder and we start craving more fats, why not turn to healthy fats? This may not sound appealing, but it honestly makes a wonderful spread on crackers! The texture is like a cross between salmon mousse and liver pate. It will give you some much needed vit A & D, as the sun is at it’s lowest and making it’s way back to us … Perhaps this is a ‘maritime’ suggestion, but it’s something that most of us in Canada and colder climates can benefit from! If you ever find your way to Newfoundland, I’d also suggest that you try Cod cheeks and tongues, though they don’t offer the same nutritional benefits as the livers. In the meantime, I wish you a happy holiday season, and these wonderful appetizers. Here’s hoping that you can find these delightful bites at a specialty fish market near you!
