ALL B2 the Arizona Republic Phoeftf*, Wed., Nov. 5, A mostest with the hostesses At the first Thanksgiving dinner, historians tell us, the Pilgrims sat down to a feast that prominently featured turkey. Today turkey is finding increased popularity with hostesses, who serve it as the main dish for dinner parties or family gatherings whether the events fall on a holiday or not; and with the man of the house, who finds turkey - on a - spit an interesting addition to his list of backyard barbecue specialties. What has caused this traditional holiday favorite to become an "in" dish on a year- round basis? There are several factors. The domesticated turkey, bred and raised for, discriminating palates, is a more tender, fleshier fowl than his wild cousin. The domestic turkey benefits from protected environment, modern feeds with vitamin and mineral supplements t and scientific drugs which combat disease. Another factor in the increased popularity is the quick freezing of turkeys at the (processing plant, which preserves flavor while permitting the housewife to buy turkey when it is convenient for her. She can keep the bird in her home freezer until she is ready to prepare it. And preparation itself is easy; the frozen bird is virtually ready for the oven, broiler or rotisserie as soon as it is thawed out. Ironically, the advent of frozen turkeys, while solving many problems for the housewife, ^created new ones. In selecting a frozen turkey at the supermarket, the housewife frequently had to bend over a waist-high freezer cabinet, reach inside to grab an ice- cold frozen bird by the slippery film overwrap, and then try to successfully lift it out of the freezer into the shopping cart. If a bird weighed fifteen pounds, this was no small wrestling match for a petite young matron. The film wrap, if it became punctured, would frequently tear. This would expose a segment of the fowl to "freezer burn," an unsightly darkening of the flesh. Packaging specialists have solved even these problems, however, by placing an attractive plastic netting over the film. The net is looped at one end to form a ~ convenient handle — the housewife can slip her fingers through the. loop and easily pick up the frozen turkey of her choice. The netting serves an additional functional purpose. By clinging tightly, the netting prevents small punctures in the protective film overwrap from developing into large tears. Thus, freezer burn becomes no problem. Peaches, turkeys top lists o/ plentiiul foods Cornish game hens brushed with a special cranberry claret glaze Mini holiday dinner for two Canned peaches and turkeys head the United States Department of Agriculture's Plentiful-Foods last for November. Also on the list are apples, broiler-fryers, dry beans, sweet potatoes, rice, potatoes and canned and frozen green beans. The total U.S. peach crop on Sept. 1 was placed at 78.6 million bushels—that's 5 per cent greater than last year and the largest crop in 10 years. November new crop turkey marketings are expected to run about the same as last year. Cold storage stocks as of Sept. 1 were estimated at 226 million pounds which is 2 per cent more than the recent 5-year average. The current year's large apple crop, about 156 million- boxes, is 21 per cent more than last year's. Broiler-fryer marketings are expected to be 12 to 14 per cent larger this month than the same month last year. But relatively high red meat prices will probably keep broiler prices above year-ago levels. Production of dry beans is expected to be about 19 million hundredweight, or 7 per cent more than a year earlier. Varieties are mainly pea and pinto beans. Sweet potato supplies will be at their seasonal peak in November. Here's a festive holiday dinner planned especially for a party of two, perhaps bachelor or newlywed. It's a mini dinner for people who want to be part of the holiday spirit but who can't face leftover turkey for the next week, or month, depending on your own ingenuity with leftovers. Instead of "Old Tom," try serving a candlelight dinner of Cornish game hens brushed with a special cranberry claret glaze.
