Blueberries in butter with a splash of wine vinegar to make a wonderfully tangy sauce--guaranteed to enhance any fowl or game dish.

Ingredients

  • 4 halves cornish game hens or squabs, halved (about 3 pounds)
  • 2 Tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper teaspoon
  • 16 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 Tbs unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 Tbs honey
  • 6 thyme sprigs
  • 1/3 cup shallot, minced
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 Tbs red wine vinegar

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375F. Rub hens with balsamic vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Place on a rack in a roasting pan; roast until thigh juices run clear, about 35 minutes.
  • To prepare garlic: Blanch cloves in boiling water. In a skillet, combine 1 tablespoon of the butter, the honey, thyme, garlic and 1/2 cup water. Simmer until liquid is reduced to a syrup and garlic turns golden brown, stirring often, about 20 minutes; remove thyme sprigs.
  • To prepare sauteed blueberries: In a skillet, over medium heat, melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Add shallots; cook and stir until tender, about 3 minutes. Add blueberries; cook until they soften, about 4 minutes. Stir in red wine vinegar; simmer until mixture has a saucy consistency, about 2 minutes.
  • To serve: Arrange each hen half on wilted escarole, if desired. Spoon sauteed blueberries and sweet garlic cloves around hens.
