In all my years of trying store-bought cans or jars of paté, including many that are not normally available in the U.S., I have finally stumbled upon one that is a keeper, and it is from a very commercial source: Henaff brand Pork Liver Confit with Herbs de Provence. I was given this jar, so I don’t know how it was procured. But this is the first one that I would actively seek out.
It has a very short list of ingredients: pork, pork livers, Cognac, salt and spices. The flavor is very porky and very high in Cognac. It is very spreadable as well.
