Game Hen with Sultanas, Cherries, Golden Beets, and Pepitas


this past week was the week for leaves. yellows, oranges, reds, and the last bit of green. 
and it's always a good idea to capture those colors on a plate. some roasted golden beets
gets paired with a halved game hen. the sultanas, dried sour cherries, and pepitas are quickly
cooked in the few drippings from the game hen (and a knob of butter) before adding just
enough wine to stop their frying. the addition of rosemary brings a piney twang as conifers
everywhere gear up for winter.
