Cornish Hens with Currant Sauce

Here's one of my favorite ways to cook Rock Cornish Game Hens ... 4 Cornish hens Stuffing (optional) Salt and Pepper to taste 1 10-ounce jar red currant jelly 1/2 Cup golden raisins (optional) 1/4 Cup butter or margarine 2 teaspoons lemon juice 1/4 teaspoon allspice Stuff hens if desired. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. In saucepan combine jelly, raisins, butter, lemon juice and all spice. Cook on low heat, stirring, until blended. For cooking in a crockpot, place a trivet in the bottom of the pot.  Place hens on end, neck end down.  Brush some of the sauce on hens in the pot. Brush hens once more during cooking, if possible. Cover crockpot and cook on low for 5-7 hours. If using a conventional oven, preheat to 325° F.  Place hens in a roasting pan or large baking dish.  Brush some of the sauce on hens prior to placing in the oven.  Cover with a foil tent and roast for about 40 minutes.  Remove foil tent and brush hens with sauce.  Roast for an additional 20-30 minutes or until the hens are browned and the internal meat temperature is 180° F. Spoon remaining sauce over hens at serving time.
