I have cured a few tubs of chicken livers using garlic powder and salt. And, I have been wondering about maybe pouring some oil (vegetable or canola or peanut) into the zip lock bags I have them stored in. In so doing, I am thinking that maybe if this is done, that once the liver is placed on the hook and cast into the water, that it would produce an oil slick of sorts. Which, would leave an easier trail for the cats to follow to the bait. My only concern is, that possibly the addition of the oil would re-constitute the cured liver to much and maybe lead to early spoilage of the livers. So, my question is in two parts, "Have you ever tried this? And/or do you think that it will indeed lead to early spoilage of the cured livers? Of course, I guess I could just pour enough in to give somewhat of a light coating to the livers. Thus, getting a slight oil slick but not quite as pronounced. Anyway, your thoughts and/or experiences would be appreciated.
