9 oz fresh duck liver
Cover the liver with cold water, a few ice cubes and the sea salt. Place in refrigerator and leave for 2 hours for the blood to soak out. Drain, dry with kitchen paper, remove any veins, etc. and dice. Also dice the bacon and pork and fry in a lightly greased pan. After 5 minutes, place the paté on top and fry lightly. Season, pour over the brandy de Jerez and, when hot, flambé. Remove from heat and add the Pedro Ximenez and the chopped truffle with the juices from the can. Stir, leave to cool, then blend. Transfer the mixture to a sheet of cling film, form into a roll about 1 1/2" in diameter and tie up the ends. Refrigerate for a minimum of 24 hours and a maximum of 8 days.
Pedro Ximénez reduction: Reduce the Pedro Ximénez to half (about 30 minutes over low heat). Add the cream and cornstarch dissolved in the orange juice. Bring to a boil and season. This sauce can be kept for several months in the refrigerator and can be used for other dishes. Cut the paté roll into slices using a hot knife. Place on slices of Melba toast, and serve with the sauce and a touch of mustard.
