It’s DAY 2 of my 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways!
I LOVE THIS STUFF, you guys. I’ve used Pourable Fruit to make Berry Meringue Parfaits and in these refreshing Boozy Berry Smoothie Shots. They’re a favorite ingredient of mine to use for impromptu late night bites too.
Most recently, I used Pourable Fruit to make a delicious Cranberry Raspberry Orange Glaze that will go awesome on so many holiday dishes. I’m including the recipe for the glaze plus the recipe for glazed game hens below.

Cranberry Raspberry Orange Glaze + Game Hens
This glaze is everything.
It’s bright and zingy thanks to the citrusy orange; sweet from the Pourable Fruit raspberry puree; and slightly tart from the cranberries. It doesn’t take very long at all to make, either. This Cranberry Raspberry Orange glaze only takes about 10 minutes to thicken up before it’s ready to use on your roast chicken, pork tenderloin, or in this case, roast game hens.
First, you make it with all of the glaze ingredients except for the raspberry and brush one coat onto your game hens before popping them into the oven. Then you add the raspberry Pourable Fruit into the glaze mixture (you do this later so that the higher sugar content doesn’t burn up early on in the roasting process), and then brush another coat of the glaze onto the meat halfway through roasting.
Glazed Game Hens
The recipe I am sharing makes two game hens, which really can serve 2-4 people depending on how hungry you are.
By the way, there are two different game hens shown in these photos. One has a nice little char on the top of its skin, which I like because I love crispy skin, and one doesn’t. Both are absolutely delicious thanks to the Cranberry Raspberry Orange Glaze!
For the Glaze:
- 1 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
- 1 teaspoon orange zest
- 1 cup cranberries
- 1/2 cup Raspberry Oregon Pourable Fruit
For the Game Hens
- 2 game hens
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add orange juice, orange zest, and cranberries and bring to a boil, then simmer for about 10 minutes.
- Rinse game hens, remove giblets, and pat dry with paper towels.
- Rub olive oil over both game hens.
- Lightly salt and pepper.
- Brush a light amount of the glaze (about 1/4 of the glaze) over each game hen.
- Place hens on a roasting pan or on a shallow baking pan and roast for 25 minutes.
- Meanwhile, add the Oregon Pourable Fruit to the glaze in the saucepan and simmer for about 5 minutes.
- After the game hens have been in the oven for 25 minutes, brush the remaining glaze over both game hens. Return to the oven and roast for an additional 30-35 minutes, until hens are cooked and skin is golden and slightly crispy.
- Remove from oven and rest on a plate for about 10-15 minutes before slicing into and serving.
