FRIDAY, 1033 BLYTHEVII.LK, (ARK.)' COUHIKR NEWS PAGE nv» MODERN HCME NEWT Conducted for this newspaper In tilt Florence ISrotxck, Editor ot Its women readers by recognized authorities on nil phases ot Iwmc making. Mrs. George Thiirn, Associulo Kditor A. New Kitchen On Your Christmas Tree? ccans and Ten of Twelve Pound Hen Is Best Says Mrs. Ten or Twelve Pound Hen Dear Friends in BljrtheviUe: Turkeys are going to be cheap this year according to the market forecasts, so why not plan to serve one on Christmas or New Year's or at some festive family dinner during the holiday period. A good turkey on the table must begin with good marketing. Select the bird from a reputable dealer. A bird weighing not more than ten to twelve pounds is the best and a hen turkey Is also more tender than the more decorative turkey cock who struts as the leader of the flock. The bird should be plump with broad, full breast and have pliable, smooth black legs with soft, loose spurs. The.shorter the neck the better the bird. If the dressed or live turkeys run'small, It is better to buy two small ones t'nan to insist on a larger bird from tlie "show" stock. The Roistlns Allow fifteen minutes p;r pound for roar-Ing a young bird; eighteen to twenty minutes for larger birds. Lay the dressed and prepared turkey in the roasting pah on its side: "lard" the breast with strips of salt pork or bacon; baste oftener than chicken. To prepare the turkey for the pan, wnxh the whole bird in cold water as scon a-3 you are ready to begin the seasoning and preparation; do this whether the bird has been dressed by the butclier,'0r-at home; let cold water run through It, but do not, let, it stand In the water. Be siirc that, nil the viscera c iokiny." are removed. Then wlp? clean with fresh cheesecloth. DD not throw away fcsl. wings and neck: but us r j these In mrtkui^ soup nnd stock. TJ dress His giblets (lieart) liver and gizz.irdl remove arteries, veins and membranes and any clots o.I blood. Cut off and discard any greenish part of the liver and be sure that the sail bladder is thoroughly..separated from- the liver- a'liri' thrown away. Remove 'It carefully so as not to break it. and wash .the giblets in any case, with cold water. Remove fat and membrane from giz'ard, cut thm the thickest part, remove the inside without breaking nnd throw this awav. The giblets if properly treated make a most delicious addition to the roast, but badly handled may give a sirong flavor to the bird nnd the gravy. Have the market man truss the bird's less, or dp ii at home, by drawing the thighs close to the body and inserting r skewer under the middle joint, runninj it tlirough t'.:e body, letting it, come out under the middle joint en the other s:de. Place wing.-; close to tlie body and hold with a skewer. Tic tie drumsticks with a' Ions string. Remove when tlie bird is roasted and ready to serve, beina careful not ID tear tlie flesh with the jknvcrs cr string. Season Carefully Jlub the outside of the turkey as well as inside tr.e vent with plenty of .sail, iifing al least, two tablespoons for nn eight pound turkey, nnd at least cue teaspoon of pep|?er. Tuck a small piece of ba- cou or salt pork under each wing. Rub the breast with (at, nr lay in strips of fat pokk as • suggested above. A roasting pan with close fitting I cover is bsst; in it place one quarter cup of water and heat, lay in the bird and cover the pan; no basting is necessary with this sort of pan until the bird is half done; then baste it; continue roasting until, fifteen minutes before''the required time limit, then turn the turkey over on Its breast so that the juices run into trie breast meat. Uncover the pan for the first fifteen minutes of roasting so the bird browns. If an open roasting pan is used baste every fifteen LESS EXPEEHE ,T GllISI ED ji'cuncl Meat Dislics Ap- on securely with tooth picks, pour the water left from cooking the cubbagc leaves Into a ittcp skillet and when bolllnc lay the n'.ulljd cabbage leaves'In It.

Many Candies for Christmas • Can Be Made Long in Advance If yen are .planniug to.make I penouchi, fudcr, fondant, butter creams or any othtr Christm»s confcclloncrr,: It might be writ to h«d the prtcaulions Sister Mary gives brlow In the second of her rcrln of six articles on Christmas BY SISTER MARV NEA Service Slaff Writer As Christmas nears it's time to think about ranking Christmas'can- dies. Particularly fondant which is better for a period' of ripening. There are many other candies, too, to be made for Christmas' boxes, delightful glfls from our own Kit- ohens. : - ' ^ ' > There are certain precautions to keep in mind »-r.en making canriy of any variety and perhaps a brief list of them will be helpful. First, always have all the Ingredients and utensils at hand nnd ready before beginning to cook the sugar.' Second, do not let candy boil un:il tlie sugar is thoroughly dissolved. Fondant Is stirred until the mgar is dissolved, and the boiling point is reached. After that do.not stir. All candies containing nfilk must be stirred while boiling to prevent sticking and scorching. Stir slowly and use a wooden spoon. Wiping Down Crystals Be cure to wipe down crystals from the sides of trc pan when making fcndant. A pastry- brush dipped in water or a bit ol clean cheese cloth wrapped around the tines of a fork, dipped into water nnd the tan be used. If the sauce pan Is covered for a few minutes ol the time, the crystals should be wiped :!own as soon as the cover is removed. The wiping down should be done before the candy starts to boil and frequently during the coking period. Another precaution is to be sure to let the candy cool before beating it. Tills applies to all fine grained candles such as fudge, fondant and pcnoiichi. A round-bottomed, pan much danger of overheating. It's a good idea to cut the chocolate in small pieces. It will take at least thirty minutes for the chocolate to melt because the water which surrounds it is of only lukewarm temperature, not more than 110 degrees p. The choco!a!c • itself should be about 80 degrees P. during the dipping. Dipping Do not try to work with less than one pound of cr.ocolnte because it's impossible to keep less at the proper dipping tcaiperature. ' The centers to be dipped should be placed at the left, hand, the melted chocolate . directly : in front and the.waxed paper-covered trays at the right. Ttie dipping can be done with Ihe fingers, a fork or a regular b:us)ietl with olive oil. :ovor with a dampened cloth an dlhen cover the bow! lightly and let stand several dajs before using.

I can tell you facts but practice alone will make perfection. Choosing {'hocolale Tt is essential to have the right kind of chocolate. Ordinary rook- ing or =-,veet chocolate will not do. There arc several brands cf a spo- cinl coaling chocolate manufactured for this purpose. Both sweet and bilter coating chocolates are available and if much dipping is planned yo-.i will need both — sweet for covering nuts and fruits and bitter, or a mixture of bath, for sweet centers. CarefuJ control of temperature of both the room in which the dip-, ping is done and tl;c chocolate ;lt- Self'ls of tlie utmost importance. A dry,, cool room of. a temperature of about CO degrees F. is necessary. ;Be sure no other cooking is going, on while dipping the chocolate • because escaping.-steam will make . the chocolate gray streaked.
