Well, its pudding time for you: here is an easy, pleasantly spiced pate made with chicken livers.

Plunge chicken livers into boiling water. Cover and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. 2. Drain livers. Push them through the fine blade of a food mill, or pound them into a paste with a mortar and pestle. 3. In a bowl, combine remaining ingredients. 4. Add mixture to ground liver, and stir to distribute evenly. 5. Place "pudding" in a small serving bowl and chill at least 2 hours. 6. Before serving, plant a few bay leaves in the "pudding", and scatter currants around them. 7. Serve with small squares of whole-wheat toast. Yield: 1 1/2 cups
