This is what I have used as treats during training sessions. Its pretty easy to cut up into small peices and carry round in a little bag. The finished product should be dry.

MICROWAVE LIVER CAKE

1lb fresh liver
4 eggs
1 tablespoon plain flour
1 teaspoon of garlic (powder, puree or fresh)

Blend all ingredients together, spread in a shallow microwaveable dish. Microwave for 5 mins, turn over in dish and microwave for another 5 mins. Leave to cool, then cut into chunks. Any excess is suitable for freezing afterwards.

Mine is at 800W. You can bake the liver cake in a conventional oven if you'd prefer to, though you'd have to basically experiment with times and heats. (Everything I eat goes in there on 220 for half hour lol!)

Just make sure you leave it to cool completely, then just chop it up. Oh, and bear in mind that it STINKS your microwave out!!!! I hate the smell of liver...Eeeew!

Why would someone want to eat the poison filter of another animal anyway? I can understand dogs wanting to. Dogs will eat anything.

no dogs wont eat anything.
Anyways I guess eating things such as liver has come from the start of humankind where you ate what you could from an animal, you took everything because it is so valuble. Liver obviously doesnt harm humans, and it has carried on thru the ages.
I was looking thru a cookbook today of the romans and their meals, there were things like nettle soup which some people (very few) still eat today, altho I wouldnt like to go around picking nettles! and they are sposed to be very good for you, I guess the lack of popularity is the difficulty in picking them LoL
