THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1949 BLYTHEVTLLE (AKK.V COURIER NEW! Jroiled Lobster itill a Question Lester Sermoy Gives Tests for Freshness, Broiling Instructions There are three questions every American wants to know about a orolled live lobster. Is it fresh? How should one cook it? And how should it be eaten for greatest enjoyment? Lester Seimay, one nf the best experts on lobster cooking in the country, says a lobster that has an odor of fiiiy kind Is not fresh. Ser- niay. whose restaurant at Long Beach, New York, is a mecca for lobster fans, adds two more tests for freshness: If. after cooking, there Is the slightest separation between shell and flesh, even the width of a fin- iJjL\rdil the lobster is not fresh fflBugh. Nor is it fresh if the lobster (ail meat docs not come out in one piece. Fresh live lobsters are traveling all over the country now. cither on trains or by plane. If Ihey start ont, and are properly packed to keep moist, (liry will stay in good condition five to seven days, according to Scrmny. Now for broiling Instructions. Remove the claws of the live lobster with a napkin around them. Do this the way you disjoint a chicken. Next place lobster on its back on a table. Insert strong sfecl knife in center of stomach nt Is underneath the eycs> and slit down u> end of tail. Then remove the stomach (a round yellowish sack). Season with salt and paprika and brush with melted butler. Have your broikr preheated to between 37£ degrees and 400 degrees p. Broil one-pound lobster from 14 to 18 minutes, basting once with butler. Be sure the claws arc well cracked to enable heat to penetrate the heavy shell. Serve with melted butter or lemon butter (butler, lemon juice and pars- Icy). Use a wooden plank instead of a platter. Lobster won't slip. To boil a live lobster plunge head first in boiling water with celery and caraway seeds. A one-pound lobster should boil from 12 to 14 minutes. Scrmay says people like boiled Jjfbster served with mayonnaise or •Russian dressing • and cole slaw. He also serves It stuffed with fresh crabmeat and with Russian dress- Ing, hard cooked" eggs and » red relish. Kitchen Drudgery Lessened by New Type Equipment Improved equipment has played . dramatic part In eliminating rudgery from present-day cooking. Modern ranges, refrigerators and oilier major appliances have contributed ease slid efficiency. A hasl o( small items of kitchen equipment also deserves considerable credit lor simplifying cooking tasks and making food preparation a science rather than a matter of guesswork. Cooking thermometers, for example, have replaced the trial and error methods formerly used to tell when certain foods were cooked to exactly the right stages. There is a thermometer designed to indicate the temperature of fat for deep fat frying, another to tell when candy mixtures are cooked to the proper consistency. Still another type of thermometer records the Internal temperature of roast meats, making it possible to cook them to the desired stages of doneness. One line of practical new cooking thermometers, made entirely ol shlnj stainless stccle, It modern' In design and efficient In operation. These thermometers h»v« round, dial-type faces which are as easy to read as the face of a clock. Temperatures are printed on the faces In' large black figures. Because of their accuracy these thermometers are known by the trade name of "Tel-Tru." Included are three types of stainless steel cooking thermometers designed for three different cook- Ing purposes. There is a thermometer for deep fat frying, for making candy and icings and for roast- Ing meats. The deep fat frying thermometer has an adjustable clip which fastens It to the frying kettle in easy lo-read positions. The dial face shows temperatures for French frying foods to golden brown perfection. The all stainless steel candy thermometer is an aid to cooking candies, Icings and Jellies to exactly the right temperatures to Insure successful products. Also made of sanitary stainless steel Is the roast meat thermometer It has a pointed stem which can be inserted Into the meat without /ear of breakage. This ellmln- PAGE THIRTEEN ales the bother of making a pre- imluary hole with a skewer. The round dial Is marked with temperatures and a guide for roasting meats to the rare, medium or well- done stages. Modern cooking thermometers, like olher types of Improved equipment, are playing an Important part in removing the guesswork from cookery. The result- Is that today's homemaker turns Mil better food products with less lime, effort and worry than ever befroe.
