Cornish Game Hens with Cherry Sauce

2 Cornish game hens
boxed stuffing to fill 2 hens (or use your favorite stuffing recipe)
1 1/2 cups hot water
1/4 cup + 2 TBS. butter
3/4 cup (10 oz. jar) currant jelly
1/4 cup pitted, dried red cherries coarsely chopped
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. allspice

In a medium bowl, combine stuffing mix with the seasoning packet,
water and 1/4 cup butter. (If using your own stuffing mixture omit
these steps) stuff the hens and place in a baking dish.

In a small saucepan, combine the jelly, cherries and 2 TBS. butter,
lemon juice, salt and allspice. Cook over low heat stirring until
the jelly melts. Reserve 2/3 cup of the sauce and set aside.

Brush remaining sauce over hens and bake 350F for about 1 1/2 hours
or until the juices run clear. Remove for baking dish and arrange
on a warm platter. Spoon the remaining sauce over the hens. The
sauce can be strained and the cherries discarded if you like.

Serve this with mashed potatoes (using the sauce over the potatoes)
and a green vegetable.
