PAGE FOURTEEN BI.YTHEVTI.t E (ARK.) COWMER NEWS TUESDAY, NOVEMBER, 24, 1!)53 W/se Buying, Roasting Assures Good Turkey By GAYNOH MADDOX NEA" Food and Markets KdUnr The Thanksgiving turkey is major event in the eating year. I must be plump, tender and juic.\ Wise buying and careful pre-roas ing preparations will give the won derful results you hope for, Beth Bailey McLean, co-autho of the new "The Complete Mea Cookbook," gives us this advice. How to buy: The broaribreaste hen turkeys 8 to 15 pounds have Jot of white meat. Tom turkey 13 to 25 pounds, are excellent fo large groups. Broiler-fryers. Bpe dally grown, weigh 2 to 10 pounds Quality and styles: Both hen fin torn turkeys may be top quality a designated by a packer's brand o government grade. Turkeys are sold fresh or frozen, dressed o ready to cook. Top quality frozen veady-lo-cook turkeys have the tendons removec from the drumsticks to make carv ing easier. If a dressed turkey is purchased, ask the dealer to pul the tendons and clean the bird BO it is ready to cook. Amount to buy: \% to ?i pouru ready-to-cook weight per serving Plan on second servings and left overs. A 12-pound ready-to-cook bird can easily serve 8 people. Frozen ready-to-cook turkeys; Thaw in the original moisture- proof wrapping in the refrigerator 2 to 3 days. Or thaw the unwrapped bird in a pan set under cold running water 4 to 6 hours. Use 24 hours after thawing. Unfrozen ready-to-cook turkeys: Keep in the refrigerator at 40 degrees F. or less. Use within 2 dnys of purchase. The turkey: Clean the turkey and remove any pinfeathers with tweezers or a paring knife. Wash the turkey inside and out under cold running water. For turkey-roasting advice, we asked our Chicago friend, Kathryn B, Niles, for her best method. Miss Niles is home economics director of The Poultry and Egg National Board. Here is her reply, To Truss: Fasten the neck skin to the back with skewers. Bring whig tips onto the back. Close abdominal opening with skewers and cord. Tie drumsticks to tail. A skewer above or through the tail helps to hold this cord in place. If there is a bridge of skin at abdominal opening, push drumsticks underneath this bridge. To roast turkey: Brush skin of bird with cooking tat. Place bird, breast up, on a rack at least '/ 2 - 3nch high in a shallow, open pan. If a meat thermometer is used, insert in center of thigh muscle adjoining the body cavity. Lay piece of aluminum foil over the bird. Pinch the foil at the drumstick and brcnsl ends. Leave the cap loose over the top and sit the sides. The turkey may be cov ered with fat-moistened chec'.so- clqth, large enough to cover the top and dnipe down on nil sides. Aluminum foil or cloth helps in uniform browning. Basting is unnecessary. Place in preheated slow oven (325 degrees F.). Do not soar. Do not add water. Do not cover. If cheesecloth dries during cooking, moisten with drippings in the bottom of (he pan. Internal tcmpenUure should be between 190 and 195 degrees in 325-degree F. oven.
