(t (ARK.)' COITRTBB Following Bask Rules Assures Best Turkey Buy Good Idea to Allow Hair Pound Per Serving of Meat By GAVNOK MADUOX NKA Food and Markets Kdllor Here are some basic, rules for netting the best turkey in your market. Whether you select a toni turkey or a hen turkey makes no difference. Even meat experts can't lell llle difference. Turkey sizes are: small, 4 to B pounds; medium, 9 to 15 pound* and large, 16 to as pounds, all ready-to-cook weights. A general rule is' a : half pound of turkey rAdy-to-ccwk wtlgtti per wiring If you want sliced turkey for another nienl or hvo, plan up to •*; pound per serving. Either allowance should give choice tidbits /or at least one left-over dish. On a wing band, a tag, or on the'wrap or package tile bird may carry a iabet—a brand name or an official government grade mark. Usually there is additional information: the weight, whether It is a young bird—the choice for roasting —and whether It Is ready-to-cook (eviscerated) or dressed style (head and feet Intact, the feathers removed but It is not drawn). When labeling Is not present, look for clenn, \\a\y skin with tew pin- leathers; a plump, full appearance Indicating' mealiness; ami good finish — fat underneath' Hie skin, nt least over Hie legs, the sides of the 'breast ami the back. A short, broad body will yield more meat than a long narrow turkey of the same .weight. A grade B bird may be In that cAiss rather than In grade A because of a skin tear, or a ciooked breastbone, yet the eating quality and meat yield cflii be good Heie you have (he advantage of lowei price If luikey Is purchased diessed. have it dravui or draw It yoiuself as *oon as possible after purchasing Cut tile neck off clo^e to the body, first slitting the neck skin down the centei of the. back to shoulders — leaving skin o;er the breast Intact — and if possible remove the leg tendon'. Tendons become hard and dry during roasting, making diumstick meal lass desirable and hard to slice clenn glb- a lets promptly. To preserve fine flavor and a«urp best results — keep a quick-frozen leady-to-conk bird frozen until ready,to cook, allowing time for def frosting. Defrosting will take 2 to 3 days',in the : refrigerator, or 4 to \ 6 hours Hitlf the uifa nipped bird vnder running cool v,nter. Be sure to remove the wrapped (cleaned) glbtcls from either the body cavity or neck pocket. Dc, frosted or fresh turkeys can be held at 36 degrees to 38 degrees F. for 1 to a days Different Use For Beef Cubes Usual St«w Meat In a Noodle Dish Here'* an unusual way for preparing beef cubes, usually served as a stew.

I suggest >ou invest In a small Inexpensive 61- page book by an experienced mother, it Is called "So Your Child Won't Eatl" and It's by Hilda Sachs. Nothing technical or ; upstage about Mrs SnchV book She writes: "Today, parents who want tlieir children rounded oiit literally, and figuratively must know color and texture 'Combinations, have a good working kilos-ledge of food values, and above all know the pioper human approach "For exnmple, children 'often become temperamental and refuse foods they formeily liked. This is the. lime lo know how to substitute oilier foods or to Oder the same food in a disguised form. "Don't limit, your child to the tilings you yourself tike, and don't let him hear you speak dcnrccat- ingly of the things yon don't like." There's a section on psychological problems of feeding children ,by Di Samuel Karelltz, M D,one of the outstanding authorities in the En si He is associate pediatrician of Ml.

Good breakfast habits arc rally goorl living habits that pny off in health and stability. The conscientious hoiise.Tiatrer's responsibility Is not to serve an attractive mid gcod-to-eal breakfast seven days a week, but abo as the hostess at.ia- blc. lo maintain a pleasant atmosphere.
