Molasses Gives
Custard Flavor
Once the really hot weather
sets in, it becomes increasingly
difficult to plan light menus that
stitr carry the necessary , daily
quota of iron. And yet the chil
dren are more active in the sum
mer, so, that iron becomes even
more "essential. Molasses carries
a high proportion of "usable"
iron and this delicious tart-sweet
flavor lends ' itself so easily to
everyday dishes, beverages and
sauces. Try adding a teaspoonful
to a glass of cold milk, flavor
fruit salad with molasses, blend it
into your barbecue sauce, spread
it on ham steaks: you'll think of
any number of ways of providing
the necessary iron in your fam
ily s diet.
Here's a popular dessert for
both children and grownups.
2 cups milk
4 eggs
i cup sugar
it teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon flour
V teaspoon nutmeg
V cup molasses
Scald milk. Beat eggs with
sugar, .then combine and beat in
remaining ingredients. Blend egg
mixture with cooled milk and mix
thoroughly. Strain into S- but
tered small custard cups. Set
'cups In shallow pan of hot water.
Bake In' slow oven (350 F.) about
1 hour, or until set. Cool and
chill. To serve, loosen custards
around edges and turn out on
small dessert plate. Pour 1-2
tablespoons molasses over each
custard. Makes 5-6 servings.
Omitting Turkey Stuffing Speedy
Those small, very young fryer-
roaster size turkeys, unusually
plentiful on markets, may be
roasted successfully unstuffed as
well as stuffed, the U. S. De
partment of Agriculture reminds
homemakers. Omitting the stuff
ing, saves oven heat, time, r. n d
labor, and may mean more pro
tein and fewer calories in a scrv
Sprinkle the Inside of the bird
with salt, tie legs and tail to
gether, brush lightly with fat,
place on a rack in a shallow un
covered pan and put into an oven
set at 32S F. Brushing fat or oil
over the outside of the bird helps
to make the meat juicy, and to
brown the skin evenly. Baste with
pan drippings or melted fat once
or twice during cooking. The very
young birds have little fat. a deli
cate flavor, and few drippings.
When the roasting is half or two-
thirds done, cut the string to re
lease the lees. A thin cloth mois
tened with fat placed loosely over
the more exposed "parts may be
used to prevent overbrowmng.
. A small turkey that weighs
about 4 pounds, ready - to - cook,
may take as little as 2 hours to
roast unstuffed, recent tests by
by home economics researchers
show. Unstuffed birds weighing
from 4 to 8 pounds should roast
in from 2 to 7 hours. If the
bird is very cold just thawed or
transferred directly from refrig
erator to oven it may take a little
longer .to cook. The bird is done
when the leg joints can be moved
easily and the flesh of the leg
feels soft and pliable when press
ed with the fingers. Because dif
ferent turkeys differ somewhat in
the time they take to cook tender,
it is well to make these simple
tests for doneness. Avoid over
cooking these little birds because
it tends to make the meat dry.
Plan roasting time so the turkey
will be done about 20 minutes be
fore serving. Turkey holds heat
well and a wait between cooking
and serving makes the , meat
easier to carve.
If you want to save time but
still serve a large family or
company meal, roast two small
turkeys instead of a large one in
about the same length of time as
one small one. A pair on the
platter can be very attractive.
Score hamburger patties before
broiling. When meat is browned
and cooked fill scoring lines with
chili sauce.
Cook a minced onion in a Quar
ter cup butter until wilted. Add
2 peeled, coarsely chopped toma
toes and cook 10 minutes. Add 2
cups cooked large dry limas. salt
and pepper to taste, and simmer
until ready to serve. Extra good
with outdoor meals. '
