…on the Third Day of Christmas…

The Yuletide continues…
and whether a “12 Days”  small plate menu might be nifty.
The Menu Shoppe gets it covered with more ideas…
…on the Third Day of Christmas…
game hens
Plum Glazed Cornish Game Hens
3 (1 1/2 pound) Cornish game hens
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
3/4 cup plum jam
1 (1.25 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
2 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced, as trim
Place the game hens in a slow cooker. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
Mix the plum jam and onion soup mix together in a bowl until well blended. Remove 1/4 cup of the jam mixture and refrigerate until needed.
Brush the remaining jam mixture over the hens. Set the slow cooker on Low for 7 hours. Brush the reserved glaze over the hens.  Cook on Low 1 hour more. Place hens on serving plates and garnish with kiwifruit slices.
Broiled Cornish Hens with Molasses and Allspice
1 tablespoon molasses
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground allspice
2 Cornish hens, backbones removed and the hens flattened and patted  dry
Preheat the broiler. In a small bowl stir together the molasses, the lemon juice, the allspice, and salt and pepper to taste. Arrange the hens skin side down on a lightly oiled rack of a broiler pan and brush them with some of the molasses mixture. Broil the hens about 4 inches from the heat, brushing them once with some of the remaining molasses mixture, for 10 minutes, turn them, and broil them for 4 minutes more. Brush the hens with the remaining molasses mixture and broil them for 4 to 5 minutes more, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
