   Preparation Time: 1:20
   1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large Dutch
   oven over medium-high heat, quickly brown pheasants in
   oil on all sides. Place apples and onions around
   pheasant. Pour applejack on top and let it heat for 1
   minute, then ignite. Shake pan until flames subside.
   
   2. Dust top of pheasant with nutmeg. Place pan in oven
   and bake until juice runs clear when tip of knife is
   inserted in thigh of bird (about 1 hour). Remove
   pheasant, cooked apples, and onions to a platter and
   keep warm in oven.
   
   3. Transfer pan juices to a saucepan. Heat over
   medium-high heat until simmering, then stir in
   half-and-half. Let mixture cook 5 minutes, stirring
   frequently, then season to taste with salt substitute
   and pepper. Pour over pheasant and serve.
