Halfway through the estimated roasting time, remove the livers, turn hens to other side and brush. Continue basting.
Ten minutes before the end of the estimated roasting time, when hens are fairly brown, glaze with 1/4 cup of apricot/pineapple jam, being careful not to spill any directly on the roasting pan. Do not allow the drippings to cook with the jam longer than 10 minutes or sauce will become burned. After 10 minutes, remove hens to platter.
Chop livers and add to roasting pan; place the pan on the stove on medium heat. Using a wooden spoon, scrape the juices, including the browned jam, and mix with 1 cup beef broth. Simmer for 3-5 minutes, stirring continuously, reducing the mixture slightly.
