Similarly one may ask, is it necessary to soak liver in milk?

Soaking in milk, which is very mildly acidic, will remove some of this taste. But don't soak it very long, or the meat will be too soft. Cleaning the liver properly (removing veins) will do more to make it enjoyable. Milder livers like chicken and duck liver don't really need to be soaked at all.
