I wish to write about something close to all our hearts…
I have just finished a delightful meal which was filling, tasty, extremely nutritious, very cheap and easy to cook, yet I'd bet that hardly any of the students here eat it regularly, and there's probably a significant proportion who've never had it.
Liver. It's wonderful. I urge you all to try it.
I had a few slices of lamb's liver, fried with onions and bacon, and supplemented with a dash of red wine. It was gorgeous, and more people should eat it.
Why? Well, it's yummy, for a start. Some people might find it an acquired taste, but I believe it's worth persevering. It's full of vitamins (specifically A and some Bs) and it's a great source of iron. It's extremely cheap. Lamb's liver from Tesco is £2.29/kg, whereas the bog-standard bacon I had with it was £5.92/kg. Liver's cheaper than standard sausages, too. It's terribly simple to cook – all I did was chop it and fry it, and Bob's your uncle.
So, impoverished students looking for cheap food – forget your value products and beans and spaghetti hoops – eat liver!
