“These plum jam-glazed Cornish game hens are fall-off-the-bone yumminess! I use homemade sand plum jelly for the glaze.”

I thought this turned out really well. The plum glaze added a really nice flavor. I might try this again with an apricot glaze. This was my first attempt cooking game hens in the slow cooker and loved the ease and convenience.

First time cooking Cornish Game Hens. Reduced the recipe down to just two birds, but thankfully kept the sauce the same. Mmmmmmm! To reduce fat, I skinned the hens before putting them in the crockpot and put them in breast down to make them extra juicy. Fancy Valentine's Day dinner with little or no extra work! Thanks!!

I didn't have any plum, but I did have cherry perserves. I did everything else the way the recipe said and it was soo tender and falling off the bone. I'm new to slow cooking and this is a keeper!
