A liver is an organ in most organisms that produces chemicals necessary for digestion. Livers of animals are commonly eaten by humans.

History

Dragon liver was sold as a potion ingredient in Diagon Alley.[1] Along with other materials from a dragon, it is known to have magical properties.[2]

It is also a known flavour of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans.[3]

A hag ordered raw liver in the Leaky Cauldron in 1993.[4]

Rubeus Hagrid had his fourth year Care of Magical Creatures students feed frog livers to the newly hatched Blast-Ended Skrewts.[5] He later moved on to having the students prepare dragon livers for them.[6]

According to a healer at St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, tying a toad liver to one's throat was part of the cure for Spattergroit.[7]
