1 Pound chicken livers

1 Tablespoon grape seed oil

1 Sprig of sage

2 Sliced shallot

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons cloves

Combine the spices in a spice or coffee grinder, and store in a small container. Close it and reserve until needed

Method:

Clean the chicken livers of any bile residue, and nerves, and season them.

Add the grape seed oil in a large and hot skillet. Put the livers, shallot, garlic, and thyme in the same time. Toss well, cooking the livers to medium rare. Flambe with cognac, transfer to a sieve. Put the sieve over a bowl, and refrigerate for an hour.
