Takeaway: Great cotton twine for baking and roasting; strong with high break strength, doesn't burn and can be used in crafts.

The twine comes on a spindle that is about 4 inches long and 2 inches in diameter. The string diameter is 1 mm and you’ll receive a total length of 100 meters, or 109 yards. The string has a pretty strong break strength consisting of 17 individual twisted fibers. I use this twine to truss chicken and game birds for roasting so that they cook evenly and retain a nice shape for serving and carving. The results are great and I haven't had any problems with the twine.

Spice Rubbed Cornish Hen Recipe
- 1/2 Tbsp all spice
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 2 Tbsp 2 Cornish hens

Create a paste by mixing the spices and olive oil together. Rub the spice paste over the hens, under the skin and inside the cavity. Bake on a roasting pan in an oven pre-heated to 450° F. After 20 minutes, baste with pan drippings or 1/2 Tbsp of butter per bird. Bake an additional 25-30 until cooked through or a thermometer inserted into the thigh reads at least 165°F. Serve whole or halved with your desired sides. Optional: Release the pan drippings with 1/2 cup cooking sherry or wine. Mix two tablespoons of the drippings with 1 Tbsp of flour to make roux, then heat the remaining drippings in a sauce pan and add the roux. Stir until thickened and serve over the hens.
