Delices d’Annie : Ingredients for 6 medium jar of mousse

– 500 g duck livers
– 300 g duck fat
– 1 egg
– 1 glass of Porto
– ½ ts salt
– ½ ts ground pepper


In the bowl of a blender, mix the livers, fat, egg, Porto, salt and pepper until the combination gets the mousse’s texture.
Pour the mixture into sterilized jars. Do not overfill the jars, because that may adversely affect the sterilization.

Let cool at room temperature, then store in the fridge.
