Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 8

8 Cornish game hens
each about 1 lb
12 Garlic cloves, peeled
and finely minced
4 Tablespoon(s) Oregano, dried
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
1 Cup(s) Red wine vinegar
1/2 Cup(s) Olive oil
1 Cup(s) Prunes, pitted
1 Cup(s) Apricots, dried
1 Cup(s) Green olives, pitted
1/2 Cup(s) Capers, plus a bit
of the juice
8 Bay leaves
1 Cup(s) Brown sugar
1 Cup(s) White wine, dry
4 Tablespoon(s) Italian parsley, chopped
Clean hens well under cold water. Pat dry. In a large bowl, combine
hens, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, vinegar, oil, prunes, apricots,
olives, capers (with juice) and bay leaves. Cover and refrigerate
overnight to marinate. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Arrange game
hens in 1 or 2 shallow roasting pans. Spoon all the marinade over the
hens. Sprinkle evenly with brown sugar and pour wine around them. Bake
for 1 to 1 1/4 hours, basting frequently, until golden. Juice should
look clear when thigh is pricked with a fork. Transfer hens, fruit,
olives and capers to a serving platter. Moisten with pan juices and
sprinkle with parsley. Pass remaining pan juices in a sauce boat.
NOTES Cornish game hens stewed in fruit and sugar -- I originally
got this recipe from the Sunday magazine of the local paper. I served
it last year for Christmas dinner, and it's very good. What's more,
this recipe is easy: you just put everything in a bowl, marinate
overnight, then bake until done! : Difficulty: easy. : Time: 5
minutes preparation, overnight marinating, 1 hour cooking. :
