2 shallots

1 leek

½ cup cream

Sprig of thyme

1 stick Butter, cut into pieces

¼ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp nutmeg

1/8 tsp ground anise

¼ cup white wine

In a medium skillet sauté shallots and leeks, until translucent. Add the thyme and garlic. Sauté for 1-2 minutes before adding the chicken liver, sauté until liver is just a little pink in the center. Add cream and cook for 30 -40 second just long enough for the cream to incorporate into the mixture. Remove from the heat and let cool for 30 minutes. Remove thyme and Process ingredients in a food processor until smooth incorporating butter into the mixture a piece or two at a time.
