      2 c  Stock, Veal **
       ** See recipe for Veal Stock, Gorgonzola Polenta, and Cranberry
       Preheat your oven to 450 F. Holding quail, breast up, tuck wing
  tips under.  Place a little of the pancetta, a sage leaf, and 2
  juniper berries in the cavity of each bird.  Sprinkle the cavity and
  outside of each bird with a little salt and pepper.  Push each leg
  joint downward and fasten it to the carcass with a toothpick, pushing
        1    toothpick through both legs.
       Heat the olive oil in a large heavy skillet over very high heat.
  Arrange birds in pan, breasts down.  Saute, shaking pan occasionally
  until breasts are lightly golden, 2 to 3 minutes.  Place the skillet
  in the oven and roast 5 to 6 minutes.  Use tongs to turn birds'
  breasts up and continue to roast until golden brown, about 6 minutes.
  Remove the skillet from the oven and transfer the quail to 6 warm
  serving plates; keep warm while preparing sauce.
       Discard any fat from the skillet and place the pan over
  medium-high heat.  Deglaze the skillet, adding the gin and wine,
  scraping up any browned bits in a pan.  Add your stock and boil
  gently until reduced enough to coat a spoon lightly.  Stir in the
  remaining juniper berries, adjust your seasonings, and pour this over
  the birds. Serve immediately.
