Cornish Game Hens with Jam Glaze

(Serves 2)

2 Cornish game hens
1/8 cup plum jam (or raspberry jam if you can’t find plum)
1/8 cup apricot jam
1/8 cup honey
Salt and pepper to taste

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Rinse game hens and pat dry. Place in baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake 1.25 hours, basting with their juices after 30 minutes. Meanwhile, combine both jams and the honey in a cup. Mix well. Remove hens from oven after 1.25 hours and pour jam mixture over them. Return to oven and bake 15 minutes more.

Serve with a delicious Pinot Noir!
