Chicken Live Pate'

Sheri Zarnick


Another recipe written on the walls of the old farmhouse. I wrote all these old recipes down and am sharing some the most unique ones. But also will be sharing many more as I feel it was a treasure to find so many old recipes that spoke of the past and times gone by, as this way I can preserve these so they can go on into the future. I hope you enjoy them too.
