This is the whole liver of lamb and weighs at least 500g (1.1lbs). The finest New Zealand quality - you will notice that there is no unpleasant odor. The whole liver is quite large and easily serves more than 4 - depending on the recipe. It is said that the lamb liver is very high in nutritional values such as Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, Copper, Riboflavin (B2), Pantothenic Acid (B5) and Niacin (B3). Lamb's liver is commonly cooked with caramelized onions in the fry-pan.
Using the whole animal is a practice that is still common in many countries around the world and is gaining momentum within the (health) conscious carnivore community. We at Horizon Farms we strongly believe in the whole animal butchery where less sought-after parts are also offered so nothing goes to waste. Usually - due to their low market price value, offals and less sought after cuts are sold domestically within the export country, and seldomly make it into export.
New Zealand lamb is internationally known for its superior quality and taste. Our New Zealand lamb takes it one step further: All year free-range open pasture-raised, grass-fed lambs. Free of growth-promoting hormones and subtherapeutic use of antibiotics. This is the finest lamb available. If you have never tried lamb or had a bad experience with lamb in the past we urge you to give New Zealand premium quality lamb a try. Our lamb comes from family-owned and operated farms and ranches in New Zealand only. Ethical raising has always been the cultural tradition in New Zealand.

Fresh and tender!
I eat a slice per day and have had an easy time with cooking it. I have no complaints whatsoever and especially in a place where non-chicken organ meat is rare, Horizon Farms has really saved me!
I enjoyed this very much cooked with bacon, onions, thyme and garlic, and a small amount of oyster sauce. I did discard the blood, but next time I will cook it for the nutritional benefits. Highly recommend, even for the squeamish like me. It is not so bad to slice it. Just thank the lamb for giving its life.
I first bought this because my regular beef liver (sliced) was out of stock. I wouldn't say I liked the idea of cutting it myself. But it's not bothering me at all. I cook the blood altogether. It's so delicious. I like cooking with carbs such as kabocha, sweet potatoes, etc., so its taste is naturally sweet without adding sugar.
