Gochi
 (Roast Suckling Pig)

To prepare a suckling pig in the Georgian manner, rub it all over with the following spice mixture and then roast it in the oven or on a split over an open fire, using a drip pan to catch the juices.

For every four pounds of meat, use these proportions of spice mixture:

3 tablespoons of boiling water
4 teaspoons of whole black peppercorns
4 teaspoons of hot red pepper flakes
4 teaspoons of coriander seed
2 teaspoons of dried summer savory
8 large garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
4 tablespoons of walnut oil
2 teaspoons of salt

Pour the boiling water over the peppercorns and red pepper flakes and leave them until softened, about 30 minutes. In a mortar with a pestle, pound them together with coriander seed and savory. Add garlic and salt and continue pounding until a paste is formed. Stir in the walnut oil.

A couple of hours before placing the pig in the oven, rub it all over with this mixture, rubbing it a little on the inside, too. Roast at 350oF, about 15 minutes for each pound, basting frequently. After carving, pour the pan juices over the sliced meat.

NOTE: This spice is also excellent for roast chicken.
