Procedure

Inject nectar Into hens breast the night before cooking. Mix vinaigrette, and jam together and set aside. Heat a 14" deep Dutch oven to 450 degrees, using 22 to 23 charcoals on top and bottom. A 12@ deep Dutch oven may need to be used also. Wash Cornish hens and season with salt, pepper, & volcano seasoning. Place 1 or 2 sprigs of rosemary inside each hen. Place on a rack in a heated Dutch oven. Cover with preheated lid. Cook for 45 to 60 minutes, as the hens brown reduce the heat to prevent burning.
