This is fabulous for company, my all time favorite. I have made this for years. I thought I lost it when I moved, thank heavens for this site.

2. Combine tarragon, preserves and liqueur or juice in blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
3. Roast hens at 400 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes, brushing several times with glaze while roasting.
4. Serve with pan juices.
