Ingredients for Georgian spice mix: 1 whole small bulb of garlic, 1 tbs of dried coriander, half tsp of crushed dill seeds, half tsp of dried Pennyroyal (also called squaw mint, mosquito plant and pudding grass), 1 heaped tsp of dried Summer Savory, 1 heaped tsp of ground coarse red pepper and salt (amount dependent upon personal preference).

Preparation (Georgian spice mix): Remove skins from the garlic and crush the cloves. Put the garlic to one side and add all of the other ingredients to a mixing bowl. Thoroughly mix. Add the crushed garlic and mix thoroughly by hand. You may want to wear gloves. This Liver recipe only requires 1 tsp of the spice mix.
