This is for the liver lovers but this one is best when made from VEAL liver (but calf liver will do fine) It is SUPER GOOD, but you must plan a day ahead ! The overnite 'soak' in milk really makes this liver tender and mild.

Disguard the milk from the soaked liver Then add the liver to the medium heated skillet with the butter and then cover the skillet with lid. Keep on a medium -low heat. Cook aprox 5 minutes (or less), Turn the slices of liver over and then return the cooked apple and onion mixture to the top of the liver slices. Cover the skillet again and allow to continue cooking for aprox another 3-5 minutes. Turn OFF heat and allow to sit on the burner, unless your burner is very, very hot, if so, then remove the skillet from the burner but keep covered for a few more minutes.

    Prepare the serving platter with the buttered egg noodles and top them with the Liver slices and then the apples and onions. The liver should be very mild tasting,(due to the overnite milk soak) and the texture should be very tender,(due to the fast but covered, cooking process.
