    got some cornish game hens!

    wow..around here i've seen them for $8 each. i rarely buy them.

    after the holidays, a local store was blowing out a huge frozen pile of them. $5 each, i grabbed two.

    now what? haha..

    i am actually thinking of just plain roasting them. i typically do this braise my mom taught me.

    i love those things. IIRC, it might be the meal that help me secure my wife!

    Brine them in a brine heavy in kumquat (it's the season) split and roast high heat with some diced persimmons tossed in duck fat. Or at least that's what I would do.

    I haven't done it since culinary school, but I remember them saying it's harder the bigger the bird. Just learn the difference between filleting and scraping.
