Nectarine Glazed Cornish Hens

The white nectarine jam by Jamnation, Rose to the Grindstone, makes a wonderful glaze for Cornish hens, with sherry vinegar and white wine providing an added tang. As the glaze reduces the flavors intensify creating a sweet + savory combination you won’t be able to put down.  Let us give you a word of two jars.  The moment we opened the jar, we started sampling it on toast points, then crackers, then spread on hard cheese.  And before we knew it, we didn't have any left to use to cook!
