    evelyn/athens's Note:

    I love liver. This is an especially nice way to make it with lots of contrasts in flavours and textures. Serve with oven-roasted broccoli and cauliflower.

      Made this for my husband and like Chia I used fresh pearl onions, cannot buy them frozen here. He liked it very much but did find that the marsala did not come through as much as he hoped and expected.

      in a word- yum! the sauce was excellent, but i substituted the raisins for 2 tbsp dried cherries, and left out the sugar. i used fresh pearl onions, and just loved this!
