This recipe is from the Gluten-Free Homemaker.
This recipe is simple and very tasty.
The liver is tender and the hint of apple flavor ,makes this recipe a little different than others you have eaten. Give it a try and you will see what I mean!
This recipe has a little tweaking by me- tweak as you like, too!
