Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 quail and about 1 tablespoon sauce)

Juniper berries are too bitter to eat, so they are crushed to release their flavor and discarded prior to serving. Use this sauce with duck or other game birds.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, and cook until reduced to 1/4 cup (about 8 minutes). Strain mixture through a sieve over a bowl, reserving wine mixture. Discard solids. Add wine mixture and jam to pan; cook over medium heat 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in butter. Keep warm.

Step 3

Sprinkle the quail with 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt and ground black pepper. Place quail on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with wine sauce.
