  1. Cut liver into chunks and place in a saucepan with all the other ingredients apart from the bacon.
  2. Cook (simmer) in the tomatoes until the liver is tender. There is no need to add water as the juice in the canned tomatoes is sufficient liquid to keep the mixture from drying.
  3. Liquidise all ingredients using a blender until fairly smooth.
  4. Line a loaf tin with streaky bacon and spoon the mixture in up to approx ¼ inch from the top. Place in a moderate oven, 165 C/Gas No3 for about 45 minutes.
  5. Leave to cool in the tin and then ease out by running a knife round the tin. Put a plate on top then turn over and gently shake out. Put in the fridge to firm up.
  6. Best served with melba toast or oatcakes and redcurrant jelly.
