Divide leeks in half lengthwise and slice celery. Cut a pocket into the side of veal and fill with liver mixture, secure with kitchen twine. Season with salt and pepper and boil in water. Add shallots, cloves, bay leaves and juniper to pot and continue to simmer. After about 1 hour, add vegetables and herbs and simmer for another 40-50 minutes.
