Comida Cubano de Rosh Hashanah

Friday afternoon, over on Facebook, I wished Mike L' Shana Tova, the traditional greeting for Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year Holiday, and mentioned that I was going to prepare Guava glazed Cornish Game Hens, stuffed with a vegetarian congri.  He told me to take photos and post it.  ( He also did a call out to Marta for  Jewban  recipes-yes, yes! Waving to Marta!)

We spent the holiday out here in our favorite small town desert hide-a-way, and when shopping for ingredients, I found that Guava was MIA from every store in town.  No paste, no fruit, no jam, no juice, nada.  So I improvised, and according to my family these were the best hens they've ever tasted.

For the stuffing I made a chicken based rice pilaf and the mixed it about half and half with Marta's recipe black beans.  I very liberally rubbed the birds with a mixture of  butter, honey, and mango, (No on the butter if you keep kosher, use olive oil or chicken fat instead.) and from the first bites, other than nummy nummy sounds, there was total silence at the table.  That never happens in our house. 

For Cigar Mike:
