Working over a large plate or bowl to catch the juice, remove the peel and pith from 2 of the oranges with a sharp knife, cutting down to the pulp in one operation.
Cut out each section from between the membrane and set aside.
Reserve the juice and add it to the juice of the third orange.

Liver continues cooking by its own heat when removed from the pan.

Increase the heat to medium, deglaze the pan with the orange juice, incorporating the meat residue by scraping it up with a fork, season with salt and allspice, allow to bubble, then add the orange sections.

Serve right away with small new potatoes, parselied and buttered or with garlic mashed potatoes and green peas.
