Perfect for Passover, my Chicken Liver Mousse is a gourmet version of the standard favorite, chopped liver.
If you have a crowd of chopped liver lovers, then my Chicken Liver Mousse with Date Jam will satisfy them all! It’s one of the Passover recipes that are sure to be a welcome sight at your Seder table. And the Date Jam certainly makes it worthy of a holiday menu.
Have you ever tried fig jam on a cheese platter? That lovely combination of sweet and savory is tantalizing paired with a nice crisp white wine.
Now, take that same mindset and apply it to chopped liver.
Think of the smooth liver pate, with a little dollop of date jam piled on top of a crunchy piece of matzo.
If that doesn’t sound fabulous, adjust your mindset! (unless you’re not a fan of chopped liver, of course!)
You can serve it family style in a crock slathered with date jam, or be a little fancy and serve it as an individually plated appetizer.
It’s entirely up to your style of entertaining! I really tried to give you some versatility with this selection of Passover recipes.
Now it’s time to talk about how to kasher your chicken livers before using them in your Chicken Liver Mousse with Date Jam.
The Torah forbids eating the blood of an animal or bird, therefore, it’s necessary to extract the blood from the kosher slaughtered meat or liver.
With meat, this process, commonly known as kashering, is accomplished by soaking the meat in water, salting it, and then rewashing it.
With liver, this method of extraction is insufficient, and it must be broiled instead.
Chicken livers hold a great deal of blood inside, so this method is the only way to correctly kasher them.
I’ve also created a great printable sheet with the entire process outlined for you. Just download the PDF and you can put Chicken Liver Mousse with Date Jam on your Seder menu.

This is a condiment I like to keep in my refrigerator for impromptu uses like cheese and meat platters.
That’s why my Date Jam recipe instantly came to mind when I was creating this Passover appetizer.
The sweet and savory combination is a delight to the tastebuds, and can really help to make a very “grey” mixture a litte more festive.
I also like to use bias-cut green onions and wedges of hard-cooked eggs to garnish my chicken liver mousse more appealing to the eye.
After a few minutes of simmering Madjool dates, diced shallots, red wine vinegar and sugar, you’ll have a marvelous mixture. Then it’s whipped into a dreamy spread!
That’s another reason I’m able to keep this luscious conconction in the back of my refrigerator. It’s so quick and easy to cook up a batch while you’re in the kitchen doing something else!
Why not cook up a double-batch to make sure you have some stored away for after the holidays?
